Explore two credit categories: 1) the Water Efficiency credits, which focus on reducing water use inside and outside the building and the importance of metering for better water management; and 2) the Energy & Atmosphere credits, which focus first on reducing energy loads and demand, using necessary energy efficiently, and applying renewable sources where possible.

This session will cover each prerequisite and credit in a credit-by-credit format presenting technical requirements and strategies that work to achieve them.


  1. Recognize ways to reduce water use inside and outside the building and implement water metering to support better water management.
  2. Recognize how the holistic approach of addressing the reduction of energy use, energy efficient design strategies, and renewable energy sources are reflected in the credits.
  3. Recognize synergies between multiple credits.
