Leading edge buildings employ design, construction and operational procedures that improve resource utilization and reduce environmental impact. LEED, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council as the nationally accepted benchmark for high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five categories: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
How can a PowerLogic energy and power management system help? Collectively, energy efficiency comprises approximately 25 percent of all possible credits awarded through the LEED certification process.
By employing a full-featured PowerLogic system, you can implement a wide variety of energy efficiency initiatives essential to attaining LEED certification.
Advanced Metering Requirements - Benchmark the energy efficiency of your existing building and its systems to verify that new designs meet minimum energy performance reductions per ASHRAE 90.1 standards
Optimize Energy Performance - Use your PowerLogic system to monitor all utilities and help you decide when to switch to alternative sources of power, shed loads or net meter power, back to the utility.
Water Efficiency – Easy integration of data from water meters enables a PowerLogic system to measure and validate the results of water conservation efforts.
