I don't know if this will help, but Paolo Soleri is very much into ecology and energy conservation. He calls his idea “Arcology”, a mixture of Architecture and Ecology.
I don't really know much about him and his work, just the basics. A video on him:
Portrait of an Artist
Architecture for Planet Earth and Beyond
Or you could probably do a search.
Hope this helps some!
