In this course you’ll hear LEED reviewers who specialize in energy- and ventilation-related LEED prerequisites and credits discuss the most essential topics to completing quality documentation, including:
- What the current energy and ventilation spreadsheets look like and how to use them.
- How to do the same quality control check of your energy model that a LEED reviewer will do, so that you can catch mistakes first.
- Key facets of LEED v4 energy and ventilation requirements that even experienced LEED professionals might not know about.
- How to document your ventilation system type using USGBC’s spreadsheet.
This course also covers energy and ventilation, with a focus on the main energy efficiency and ventilation prerequisites and credits. It also touches on other issues, including renewable energy, commissioning, and natural ventilation. All LEED professionals will learn from the course, but the focus is on LEED BD&C requirements and documentation.
After watching the videos, download the Practice Exercises document and supporting handouts in the Additional Resources section on the right.
