The National Electrical Manufacturers Assn. has released MG 1-2003, Motors and Generators, a revised version of MG 1-1998. The standard provides more than 500 pages of manufacturing and performance data.

ASHRAE is looking to take its energy efficiency guidelines to the next level. Three sets of proposed documents would provide energy savings from 30% to 75% above ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1, which currently sets the minimum energy efficiency required by most building codes.

A/E/P firms reached an all-time high this year in spending on marketing, according to Natick, Mass.-based ZweigWhite. The firm's "2003 Marketing Survey of A/E/P & Environmental Consulting Firms" reports 5.3% of net service revenue was spent on marketing, a notable statistic, given the state of the economy over the last few years.

The 2003 annual U.S. Green Building Council Leadership Awards are open for nominations until midnight EST, Sept. 30. Nominations can be submitted by any USGBC member.
