Energy Performance of LEED for New Construction Buildings

Publish Date: March, 2008

NBI has completed the broadest study to-date of measured energy performance of LEED buildings called “Energy Performance of LEED for New Construction Buildings.” Aimed at better quantifying the actual energy performance levels of green building, the study gathered whole building energy data from 121 LEED-NC buildings across the country that had been occupied for at least one year. The results look at the relationships of actual performance levels to other benchmarks, including initial modeling and ENERGY STAR ratings.
