ANNUAL ENERGY USE

Commercial
1 to 3 credits for a reduction in the maximum electricity demand by 15%,23% and 30% respectively.

Encourage energy conservation and methods to reduce peak electricity demand
-Escalators reduce speed when not in use or on standby
-LED lighting systems

ENERGY EFFICIENT SYSTEMS

Encourage the design of structural elements and choice of materials thatresults in lower embodied energy.

-building foundations, building core, walls,

VENTILATION IN COMMON AREAS
