Energy modeling is one of the best tools that project teams have in designing cost-effective, high performance buildings. Additionally, it continues to be an essential part of designing LEED-certified buildings, and LEED v4 is providing projects with more incentives to model early and often. This presentation will focus on the energy modeling aspects of the Integrative Process and Optimize Energy Performance credits, highlighting the changes made since LEED v3 and presenting relevant case studies.
- List the basic requirements of the EA credit Optimize Energy Performance in LEED v4 BD+C
- List the basic requirements of the IP credit Integrative Process in LEED v4 BD+C
- Describe the differences in the EA prerequisite Minimum Energy Performance between LEED v3 and v4 BD+C
- Explain how energy modeling has been used during various stages of design to improve performance
