PHOENIX, Nov. 12 -- BuildingGreen, publisher of the GreenSpec Directory and Environmental Building News, today announced its Top 10 Green Building Products for 2009.

The eighth annual award, announced at the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild Conference, recognizes the most exciting products drawn from recent additions to the GreenSpec Directory and coverage in Environmental Building News.

This year’s list is particularly diverse, ranging from a recycled-content concrete block, to a flywheel energy storage system for data centers, a mobile solar generator for jobsite power, and an advanced modular classroom for schools. Five products on the list are of interest to residential builders. See the slide show for more information.

“Our selections of the Top 10 Green Building Products represent a wide range of product types in many different application areas,” said BuildingGreen founder and executive editor Alex Wilson.

Several energy-saving products made the list this year, including a line of mineral wool insulation, an integrated rain-screen/insulation wall cladding for commercial buildings, a heat-pump water heater, and an energy control system for lighting in commercial buildings.
