Energy

Energy attributed to building operations is one of the largest contributors to carbon dioxide emissions. Conserving and efficiently using energy in buildings can have the largest single impact on our environment. This category looks to promote the following influential strategies:

  • Analysis and forecasting of selected systems – Life Cycle Costing
  • Use of natural ventilation
  • Inclusion of efficient HVAC systems
  • Efficient and comfortable heating systems
  • Efficient and responsive lighting systems
  • Carbon dioxide monitoring and control
  • Metering, zoning and control
