Minimum Energy Performance Calculator v2009

LEED version: v2009
Excel doc

This file must be used for group certification projects, in accordance with the LEED Application Guide for Multiple Buildings and On-Campus Building Projects..

Additionally, for single-building projects, this file may be used to document the LEED 2009 requirements for EA Prerequisite 2: Minimum Energy Performance in lieu of the Table 1.4 spreadsheet and the majority of the data in the EAp2: Minimum Energy Performance Form.

Note: If using ASHRAE 90.1-2010 per LEED Interpretation 10421, please use the v4 Minimum Energy Performance spreadsheet in lieu of this spreadsheet.

  • Please follow the instructions in the Instructions tab. The spreadsheet includes the following updates from the earlier version of the spreadsheet:

    • Includes the option for single-building or multiple-building (group certification) reporting.
    • Added the option for SI or IP units.
    • Includes a multifamily residential tab which provides specific support in modeling residential energy efficiency measures such as water heating flow reductions, Energy Star appliances, etc.
    • Includes enhanced quality control checks for both inputs and outputs, intended to help the project team in the energy model quality control process, and correct common modeling issues before submitting the project for review.
    • Streamlines reporting requirements for group certification projects that are all modeled in a single energy model.
