Recognizing the influence that the nation's architects can have in
reducing the environmental impact of buildings, EPA is expanding the
ENERGY STAR program to include commercial new construction by
encouraging the design of energy-efficient buildings.

Architecture firms will now be able to distinguish projects that have
been designed to be among the most efficient buildings in the country as
"Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR."

Visit our new Web site www.energystar.gov/newbuildingdesign to see a
sample of the "Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR" graphic. Find out how
easy it is to rate the energy performance of your designs, receive
recognition for designing top energy performing buildings, apply for a
2005 ENERGY STAR award, and earn AIA CES credits.

Internet-based training about new building design and other resources
from ENERGY STAR is available at

Energy efficiency helps prevent greenhouse gas emissions caused by
commercial building energy use, and LEED provides up to ten points for
optimizing energy performance.
