Green Building Trends for 2010

Green building has been a bright spot in an otherwise lackluster year, according to non-profit Earth Advantage, which works with builders and developers in the US Northwest to bring energy efficient and healthy homes to the market.

The group recently released a list of 10 Green Building Trends to Watch in 2010. These include:

  1. The smart grid and connected home
  2. Energy labeling for homes and office buildings
  3. Building information modeling (BIM) software
  4. Buy-in to green building by the financial community
  5. “Rightsizing” of homes
  6. Eco-districts
  7. Water conservation
  8. Carbon Calculation
  9. Net Zero Buildings
  10. Sustainable building education
