This study found that on average, LEED-NC buildings are delivering anticipated savings. LEED energy use is similar to predictions—25-30% better than the national average. Average savings increase for the higher LEED levels, with Gold/Platinum buildings approaching the interim goal of Architecture 2030. Results for individual buildings, span a wide range, which calls for further research and areas of improvement for LEED.
