About LEED

 

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

 

The LEED for Building Design and Construction (BD+C)  is designed to guide and distinguish high-performance commercial and institutional projects, including office buildings, high-rise residential buildings, government buildings, recreational facilities, manufacturing plants and laboratories.


LEED Professional Accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED certification process. LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles and the LEED Rating System.

About Passive House (PASSIVHAUS)

 

The Passive house premise of energy reduction is based on the physics of thermal energy transfer & storage energy loads.

Passive House provides an air tight building envelope, high levels of insulation,& the inclusion of a controlled ventilation system with heat recovery/energy recovery (HRV or ERV) means that a Passive House has an extremely high level of good indoor air in terms of temperature & moisture & pollution reduction.

 

 
Passive house principles can be implemented in any building type.

The “passive” in the name does not necessarily refer to passive solar heating, although with solar exposure, passive solar can be a significant contributor to free heat gain, & shading can reduce summer heating loads

Passive refers rather to the use of heat energy generated by occupants, & from heat producing electrical equipment like computers or a refrigerators, and from heat producing activities like cooking,  for heating the interior spaces. So there is no permanently active heating system, no boiler, no furnace.
