March 20, 2008: Study Shows LEED Buildings Provide Anticipated Energy Savings
On average, LEED buildings are delivering the anticipated savings, performing 25-30 percent better than national average or modeled baselines. Individual building results, however, display a high degree of scatter, with some performing much better than average and some much worse. These and other results from this exploratory study suggest several opportunities for improved feedback tools, follow-up research on actual performance factors, improved modeling guidelines, and LEED program refinements.
