Green Building and Sustainability Newsletter: DOE Proposes New Standards for Federal Buildings; Baltimore County's Tax Credit for High Performance Homes
Every two weeks, Whiteford, Taylor & Preston’s Green Building and Sustainability Industry Group publishes an e-newsletter, edited by Adam Baker, LEED AP BD+C, covering sustainability issues that impact a wide array of industries, including Real Estate, Construction, Government Contracts, Manufacturing, and Intellectual Property. The latest edition can be found here. It features an article by Martha Perkins on proposed new standards from the Department of Energy for energy efficiency and sustainable design for the construction and major renovation of federal buildings; a piece by Jennifer Busse, LEED AP BD+C on green residential property tax credits in Baltimore County, also briefly discussed in this recent Green Building Law Brief post; and a recap of the USGBC-Maryland Chapter's 2010 Maryland General Assembly Session Green Legislation Wrap-Up Event, hosted by Whiteford, Taylor & Preston at our Baltimore office on June 9.
