Join USGBC Minnesota on Tuesday, Feb. 14 for a Lunch & Learn session focused on geothermal heat pump systems and how they can impact LEED credits.

These systems are energy efficient and can help a project achieve LEED certification — however, they're not recommended for every project. During the seminar, we'll provide an overview of geothermal design and project parameters that affect geothermal operation and payback.

Learning objectives

  • Understand when and how to use different types of wellfields
  • Understand why a geothermal heat pump system is not considered an on-site renewable system in the LEED v2009 or LEED v4 BD&C rating systems
  • Understand how a geothermal system affects the LEED baseline selection in LEED v2009 EAp2/EAc1 and LEED v4 EA Minimum Energy Performance Prerequisite and Optimize Energy Performance Credit
  • Understand how the combination of utility rates and baseline selection impacts point eligibility for LEED v2009 EAp2/EAc1 and LEED v4 EA Minimum Energy Performance Prerequisite and Optimize Energy Performance Credit

Continuing education credit — This program qualifies for 1 GBCI CE and 1 AIA HSU/LU.
