Where to start with a Green Home?

In 2001 the U.S. Green Building Council launched the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification program. The USGBC is a non-profit, consensus based organization that has gathered together some of the best building standards from around the world. The standards are updated by the members of the USGBC every three years or so to keep pace with the evolving standards for the ASHRA (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning) and other standards. The presentation will be an overview of the most recent update of the LEED standards called Version 4. At the highest level of V4 Platinum the buildings are net-zero energy and water. Net-Zero means that the building creates as much energy as it uses during the year and that it produces all the drinking water it requires and treats its waste to tertiary standards, removing 80% of the total suspended solids. You will learn from the presentation how to design a sustainable landscape, reduce your water use, improve energy and comfort of your home or office, use regional, reused, recyclable and renewable materials and improve the indoor air quality of your home or office. The take away will be a self guided tour of the LEED projects in Cincinnati, so that in 3 hours you can tour Cincinnati’s LEED public buildings, including a University of Cincinnati premier LEED project, understand why the Cincinnati Zoo is one of the Greenest zoos in the worlds and finish your tour at the Moerlein Lager House, the Cincinnati’s Park Board’s first LEED project. On the way you’ll also see the first LEED Platinum Cincinnati Public School, the first LEED Platinum interior of a commercial building and Hamilton County’s renovation of the Times Star Building.
