  • Buildings* in the US use

  • > 36% of total U.S. primary energy use 2

  • 30% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions 3

  • 65.2% of total U.S. electricity consumption 1

  • 136 million tons of construction and demolition waste in the U.S. (approx. 2.8 lbs/person/day) 4

  • 12% of potable water in the U.S. 5

  • 40% (3 billion tons annually) of raw materials use globally 6

    LEED® EB is a certification tool for Existing Buildings.

    It does not require a design team. Building Operators and Maintenance team can implement LEED® EB.

    It addresses operations, maintenance and systems retrofits and upgrades.


    Slide7 l.jpg

    Requirements of LEED® EB

    Erosion and Sedimentation Control

    Age of Building Prerequisite

    Minimum Water Efficiency, Discharge Water compliance

    EB Retro Cx

    Minimum Energy Performance, Energy Star

    Ozone Protection

    Waste Stream Audit

    Storage /Collection of Recyclables

    Reduced Mercury Light Bulbs

    Indoor Environmental Quality: Outside air, ETS, Asbestos

    Why is nyserda interested in leed eb l.jpg

    Retro CX on average increases building performance by 5-15%.1

    Commissioning just 10% of the existing large commercial buildings in New York, with resulting average savings of 10%, would provide energy savings of approximately 288 million kWh annually and peak demand savings approaching 150 MW.1
