We're not sure when or how this will affect the AEC industry, but there could be some changes coming to the Energy Star system that determines whether a building or appliance is energy-efficient. One possible idea is adding a "superstar green label" for the top performers. The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources in its Clean Energy Leadership Act of 2009 that would require an overhaul of Energy Star.
So, what do you think? Should the program be overhaul, given a few tweaks or left alone?
