Green Buildings Initiative

Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with the subject of Leeds (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in their area? This is a Green Building Initiative.

I am trying to bone up on this, and to understand what incentives are in place.

This is, of course, due to the fact I'm trying to market an energy savings device for high rise buildings on a very very shoe string budget. In fact on almost no budget. So if I could just get the designers and engineers for Leeds projects to evaluate our product, I could get going.

I suspect any product that can save 18 percent on high rise heating costs and 10 percent on cooling costs should be easy to market, once we get some momentum.

This subjet of course is broader than just my little niche, and I have some ideas surrounding high rise building envelope and systems that might serve to increase the energy efficiency of those apartments and condos that are in the market to save money on heating and cooling bills.

But hey, some of the initiatives with waste water, ground loop cooling, natural light buildings, etc are really cool, or hot!

I became really familiar with LEED this summer, when I interned at the Mayor's Office in Chicago. Mayor Daley is trying to make Chicago the greenest city in the country and has mandated that all new city construction develop to some LEED standards. The Chicago Center for Green Technology is the first building of it's kind in the midwest and in an urban setting (I think there are two others, but they are in the country side or something) to receive a Platinum Rating for LEED. I am only aware of how some city buildings in Chicago have been mandated to utilize LEED in their construction.

Here is a link to a useful website: LEED

Also .. I posted something about Solaire that is a highrise on Battery Park in NYC that is all into environmental, energy conservation construction ... you might want to check that out.

There are tests that you can take also to become LEED certified, which you might look into and it's a great thing to put on your business cards.

Thanks for the info, Chicago is a perfect market for our product. If I could only get 1 sale I'm sure we would all do well!

Thanks again..

The University Of South Carolina took a big initative with LEED with the openinig of their "Green" dorm, West Quad. There are pictures and tons of information on this energy efficent building on USC's website.
