The number of buildings which apply sustainable and energy efficient measures has doubled within the last year
The growing number of locations and type of both retrofit and new construction projects that incorporate energy efficient measures draft the path to a new building practice based on high efficient designs.
In this sense, there are several entities promoting certification programs to recognize the excellence in design for these buildings that incorporate measures of that kind. Among them, the LEED certification is very popular and it is promoted by the US Green Building Council; it establishes several regulations and strategies to set the standards of energy efficient design and sustainable buildings.
Our photovoltaic glass contributes to such certification system by offering LEED credits; these can be consulted on our LEED Certification guide. Check it out.
