CHP-Equipped District Energy: A Winning Strategy for LEED and PEER

WHEN: Wednesday, January 18, 2:00-2:45 PM ET


The EPA CHP Partnership and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) will co-host a webinar about CHP-equipped district energy in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER) rating systems. This webinar will highlight:

  • The potential significant LEED point impact for buildings that connect to CHP-equipped district energy systems.
  • How buildings connected to district energy systems earn points in the LEED for Building Design and Construction: New Construction and Major Renovations rating system.
  • Overview of USGBC's PEER rating system and how the energy-efficiency benefits of CHP-equipped district energy systems are recognized.
  • Opportunities to get involved with the development of LEED and PEER as they relate to district energy and CHP.
