AbstractBuildings are big end-users of energy and are where most of us spend most of our time, therefore, the need for buildings to reduce energy usage while still providing a satisfactory indoor environment for their occupants is critical. The green building movement may be an effective catalyst for this, and various green building rating schemes are now in use worldwide. The basis of most programs is an integrated design approach, driven by a scheme that allots points for building design features deemed to improve sustainability. One popular rating scheme is the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) system. In LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC), for example, points are awarded for sustainable siting, water efficiency, energy performance, material selection, and indoor environment quality.
