ENERGY STAR promo logoThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is partnering with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Public Architecture’s 1+ Program to launch a new service, matching ENERGY STAR eligible buildings, owned by nonprofits and government agencies, with architects willing to verify applications on a cost-free, “pro bono” basis. In return, licensed architects will receive up to 8 continuing education credits for their verification services.

On Public Architecture’s 1+ website, schools, houses of worship, hospitals, and other non-profits will be able to list their project(s) and request pro bono services. Licensed architects will be able to search the directory and respond to requests for pro bono services.

You can find more information here on ENERGY STAR’S website, as well as these factsheets from ENERGY STAR about Earning AIA Credit and Cost-Free Verification for Your Building.
