Hi, could you point to good resources to illustrate the history of green design in the US? I am preparing to teach an hour-long session on the "understanding the energy efficiency of US buildings" -- which will include (1) facts and figures on current state, (2) a bit of history on green design, (3) building codes and (4) incentives.  
I am looking for catchy visuals that illustrate thought-provoking concepts and ideas that an architect could quickly grasp (without having to read a book). I usually refer to EIA, IMT, ACEEE, etc. for such resources. (such as https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.imt.org/resources/map-u-s-building-benchmarking-policies/__;!!JYXjzlvb!2FqbljMsAbzsJw-M_YzdzLt03bYPPj8NDtWR6H-j2rqjc-4Swqt8nHIe2ZPtGw$ ) But if any of you have others, I'd love to know about them.

This hour will be followed by the rest of the day teaching on passive design, so the first hour will tee up the day for that. This seminar is focused on the residential sector, but I typically cover the commercial sector more heavily. So, would appreciate both.

Any pointers appreciated. Thank you!
