Program Topic 
Seattle Energy Efficiency Trends and a Glance at LEED v4.0

Nathan Miller, PE, LEED AP BD+C, Rushing
Stefanie Young, LEED AP BD+C

Presentation Description

Two topics that are rising to the surface in sustainable design discussions throughout Seattle are the upcoming new version of LEED, Version 4, and the 2012 Seattle Energy Code, both being launched towards the end of this year. This session will cover both of these topics and will provide in-depth insight into what kind of energy efficiency measures are being applied for various building types and how they will evolve due to these two changes. Having worked on 232 multifamily residential buildings, 154 corporate towers and 1 Living Building Challenge project in the past few years, Rushing brings a wide breadth of real, on-the-ground sustainability experience to this session.

After this session, you will walk away with:
1. An understanding of the key impacts of LEED v4.0, with a focus on energy efficiency and IAQ
2. Knowlege of Seattle Energy Code changes to watch for including on-site renewable energy and additional metering
3. Tips for weaving the new energy code requirements into achievement of the new LEED credits
4. Knowledge of what energy efficiency measures are being applied to local buildings, from the no-brainers to Net-0
