LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a rating system developed by the USGBC (US Green Building Council) to distinguish buildings demonstrating a commitment to sustainability by meeting performance standards in environmental responsibility and energy efficiency. LEED assesses the sustainability of buildings in five key areas; energy efficiency, water savings, indoor environmental quality, materials selection and sustainable site development. The Canadian Green Building Council developed a Canadian version of LEED with energy efficiency requirements based on the Canadian Model National Energy Code.
Caneta Energy provides energy efficiency support for LEED teams with energy modeling, drawing and specification review, construction verification, and support on commissioning and monitoring & verification. We also offer full service LEED evaluation.
Caneta Energy’s experience in energy efficiency and simulation is a valuable asset for teams designing a LEED building. We have been involved with more than 10 LEED projects and have staff who are LEED accredited professionals.
