USGBC Press Release - New Energy Credit Required for All LEED Projects

The USGBC's climate change agenda has prompted a decision to make Energy Performance Requirements increase by 14% within LEED. The change means that all LEED projects must meet the 2 "Optimize Energy Performance" points to get certification. By these standards NC buildings will have 14% greater energy efficiency and existing buildings will be 7% more energy efficient.
