Greening the Public Sector, Maximizing Energy Efficiency

The majority of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states have policies in place to ensure that publicly funded building projects reduce their energy use, lighten their carbon footprint, and save money by lowering operating costs. At a time when the economic climate has slowed new construction in many states around the region, we have an opportunity to take a step back and reflect on these policies, so that we are better equipped to move forward in the future.

Based on a review of the region’s policies mandating the construction of high performance state-funded buildings, this report provides a set of recommendations for Northeast and Mid-Atlantic policymakers on how to maximize energy efficiency as part of their comprehensive high performance building policies.
