    Improving the Energy Performance of Green Buildings. When the High-Performance Buildings Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently completed evaluation studies of six newly constructed high-performance buildings, it determined that although the buildings did save a significant amount of energy, they weren't saving as much energy as the group had predicted. The Living Building Challenge is an international sustainable building certification program created in by the non-profit International Living Future Institute. It is described by the Institute as a philosophy, advocacy tool and certification program that promotes the most advanced measurement of sustainability in the built environment. It can be applied to development at all scales, from.

    One important outcome of this project will be the development of a long-term demonstration program that will provide teaching and research tools for many decades. In addition, we will develop models that will be available for others to use, present our findings to others, and are planning a book tentatively titled “The Greening of Aiken: Applying Ecological Design in a Participatory Learning. d.

    efficient buildings is quite distinct from the designs of traditional 20 th-century ‘ energy hungry ’ buildings; creative designs and rigours engineering analyses are required. A ‘ green Author: Mithila Achintha.   With NAN Inc. incorporating high performance and efficiency features throughout the facility, they are pursuing LEED Gold certification. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and it represents a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods.
