Presentations from the August 5th, 2010 Green Code Institute webinar.
A white paper published by the USGBC (updated May 2011), this report discusses the importance of codes and the need for further code development. Argues that as building codes advance they must incorporate green building practices, thus driving the stringency of LEED certification to advance beyond net zero energy and impact. Additionally, the report discusses recent advances in building and energy codes including the IGCC, as well as how these codes can be implemented in the future.
BCAP commissioned the Britt/Makela Group to prepare a national listing of voluntary and mandatory above code, high performance, and green building programs in August 2009.

The New York Green Residential Building Program (GRBP) is a new NYSERDA program that offers incentives to building owners who demonstrate the building meets program requirements. The building owner is the person who holds title to the residential building on the date the Certificate of Occupancy or Certificate of Completion is issued. The owner may be the builder, the homeowner, a housing authority or other such organization, for purpose of this program.
