what is green building
What is Green Building?
  • Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
green building facts
Green Building Facts
  • Energy
    • 38.9% of U.S. primary energy use (Environmental Information Administration (2008). EIA Annual Energy Outlook.)
    • 38% of all CO2 emissions (Energy Information Administration (2008). Assumptions to the Annual Energy Outlook.)
    • 72% of U.S electricity consumption (Environmental Information Administration (2008). EIA Annual Energy Outlook.)
  • Water
    • 13.6% of all potable water (U.S. Geological Survey (2000). 2000 data.)
green building facts1
Green Building Facts
  • Materials
    • 40% of raw materials globally (Lenssen and Roodman (1995). Worldwatch Paper 124: A Building Revolution: How Ecology and Health Concerns are Transforming Construction. Worldwatch Institute.)
    • 170 Million tons of building-related construction and demolition debris (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (2009). Estimating 2003 Building-Related Construction and Demolition Materials Amounts.)
    • 209.7 million tons of municipal solid waste (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (1997). Characterization of Municipal Solid Waste in the United States. Report No. EPA 530/R-98-007.)
why build green
Why Build Green?
  • The cost per square foot for buildings seeking LEED Certification falls into the existing range of costs for buildings not seeking LEED Certification. (Davis Langdon (2007). Cost of Green Revisited: Reexamining the Feasibility and Cost Impact of Sustainable Design in the Light of Increased Market Adoption.)
  • A 2% investment in green building design results in life cycle savings of 20% of the construction costs (Kats, G. (2003). The Costs and Financial Benefits of Green Buildings: A Report to California's Sustainable Building Task Force.)
  • Sale prices for green buildings are 10% higher per square foot than non-green buildings (Miller, N., Spivey, J. & Florance, A. (2007). Does Green Pay Off?)
why build green1
Why Build Green?
  • Green building costs are overestimated by 300%. (World Business Council for Sustainable Development (2008). Energy Efficiency in Buildings.)
  • Cost benefits of green building:
      • Operating costs decrease 8-9%
      • Building value increases 7.5%
      • Return on investment improves 6.6%
      • Occupancy ratio increases 3.5%
      • Rent ratio increases 3%(McGraw Hill Construction, Green Building SmartMarket Report, 2006)
why build green2
Why Build Green?
  • Compared to the average building:
      • Green buildings consume 26% less energy
      • Green buildings have 13% lower maintenance costs
      • Green buildings have 27% higher occupant satisfaction
      • Green buildings have 33% less greenhouse gas emissions(GSA Public Buildings Service (2008). Assessing Green Building Performance: A Post Occupancy Evaluation of 12 GSA Buildings. )

LEED® - Outside the Building
  • Water Efficiency Credit 1: Water Efficient Landscaping
    • Intent
      • Limit or eliminate potable, surface, or subsurface water use for landscape irrigation
    • Requirements
      • OPTION 1. Reduce by 50%
        • Reductions must be attributed to any combination of the following items:
          • Plant species, density and microclimate factor
          • Irrigation efficiency
          • Use of captured rainwater
          • Use of recycled wastewater
          • Use of treated water
leed outside the building4
LEED® - Outside the Building
  • Water Efficiency Credit 1: Water Efficient Landscaping
    • Requirements
      • OPTION 2. No Potable Water Use or Irrigation
        • Meet the requirements for Option 1.

AND

        • PATH 1
          • Use only captured rainwater, recycled wastewater, recycled graywater or treated water for irrigation.

OR

        • PATH 2
          • Install landscaping that does not require permanent irrigation systems.

what is egrid
What is eGRID?
  • The Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) is a comprehensive source of data on the environmental characteristics of all electric power generated in the United States.
  • eGRID is issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
location location location
Location, location, location….
  • If you run a 100 watt bulb for 10 hours you would use 1000 watts of electricity or 1 kilowatt hour (kWh).
  • The amount of carbon dioxide produced can vary considerably by location.

information contained in egrid
Information Contained in eGRID
  • For every US power plant and electric generating company, eGRID provides:
    • A detailed emissions profile including:
      • nitrogen oxides (NOX)
      • sulfur dioxide (SO2)
      • carbon dioxide (CO2)
      • mercury (Hg)
      • methane (CH4)
      • nitrous oxide (N2O).
egrid background information
eGRID Background Information
  • eGRID Background information is stored in the ARCHIBUS TEAMS Application
egrid information utilized
eGRID Information Utilized
  • The eGRID Background information is then used to calculate Indirect Emissions Scope 2 in the ARCHIBUS TEAMS Green Building Module
what is cap and trade
What is Cap and Trade?
  • Cap and trade is a two-part regulatory system in which the “cap” is a government-imposed limit on carbon emissions, and the “trade” is a government-created market to buy and sell greenhouse gas credits. Companies that generate less than the allowed emissions can sell credits allowing others to emit more gases than the cap allows.
return on investment
Return on Investment
  • Lower operating costs
    • More efficient subsystems
  • Lower life cycle ownership costs
    • Design integration can lower lighting and HVAC loads
  • Higher employee health and well being
    • Reduced absenteeism, illness and fatigue
  • Higher worker productivity and morale
