ENERGY STAR for new homes standard: M144-237/2012-7E-PDF
"The international ENERGY STAR program was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1992. The program was designed to encourage energy-efficient practices that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By identifying and promoting energy-saving products, the initiative helps protect the environment and lowers energy bills at the same time. The Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) of NRCan has promoted the international ENERGY STAR symbol in Canada and monitored its use since 2001. The “ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Standard” specifies the technical requirements for a house to be an ENERGY STAR qualified home. It covers topics such as eligibility requirements, pertinent references, and terms and definitions used in the program. It also specifies the minimum requirements common to all ENERGY STAR qualified new homes, outlines the compliance options, and details the prescriptive packages, also known as the Builder Option Packages (BOPs)”--P. x, 1.
