Track F | Energy Services
This presentation is designed to explain the newly made permanent Research and Development Tax Credit and how it is utilized to increase innovation by building designers, engineers and equipment manufacturers in the High Performance and Green Building Industry. We will discuss how the credit allows for increased experimentation with new energy technologies and green design methods, and how to identify these eligible activities. We will discuss how equipment manufacturers developing new or improved green technologies or conforming to LEED standards use the credit to relay the risks associated with innovation. We will also explain how designers and end-users that incorporate these new technologies and methods into their processes can ease the initial cost of implementation through the tax credit. We will provide new strategies created by the legislative update for companies at all stages of the technology chain to use this credit to make their product or process more effective, and High Performance building and equipment designer case studies which show these successes.
