How Cool Roofing can provide LEED credits

  1. 1. ASTEC Cool Roofing & LEED Credits
  2. 2. Cool Roofs can qualify for a total of 3-4 LEED points possible. LEED-EB: about 10% of all required LEED points can be attributed to cool roofs. Silver Level: about 9% from cool roofs. Gold Level: about 6% from cool roofs Platinum Level: over 4% from cool roofs
  3. 3. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design LEED uses existing green metrics and rating systems such as ASHRAE, ENERGY STAR®,U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  4. 4. 4 levels of LEED-EB Certification LEED-EB: 34-42 points Silver Level: 43-50 points Gold Level: 51-67 points Platinum Level: 68-92 points
  5. 5. Cool Roof Systems can qualify for 3 LEED Conditions. Sustainable sites Energy Management Indoor Environmental Quality
  6. 6. LEED Condition: Sustainable Sites Have in place over the performance period an ENERGY STAR® compliant high- reflectant roof. Initial reflectance of at least 0.65 reflectance & at least 0.5 when tested in 3 years minimum emissivity of 0.90 for a minimum of 75% of the roof surface. 1 LEED point
  7. 7. LEED Condition: Energy Efficiency requires product or action exceed ASHRAE 90.1 -2004 by 14%
  8. 8. What is the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 standard? Roofs with a minimum total solar reflectance of 0.70 and a minimum thermal emittance of 0.75 comply. 14% over the standard = solar reflectance of 0.798 and thermal emittance of 0.855
  9. 9. LEED Condition: Energy Efficiency Cool Roofs can : Lower the amount of solar energy being absorbed into the building through the roof. Lower the amount of energy required to maintain current interior temperatures. 2 LEED Points
  10. 10. LEED Condition: Indoor Environmental Quality Comply ASHRAE STD 55-2004
  11. 11. What is Standard 55-2004? The standard specifies conditions of indoor thermal environment that occupants will find acceptable. The standard is intended for use in design, commissioning and testing of buildings and other occupied spaces and for the evaluation of existing thermal environments.
  12. 12. LEED Condition: Indoor Environmental Quality ASHRAE STD 55-2004: Addendum F October 2007 - Issued November 2008 - Completed public review January 2009 - Board meeting for final approval Addendum F expands roof requirements to include cool roofs. If accepted: 1 LEED Point
  13. 13. Sustainable Facilities ENERGY STAR® qualified roof products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and reduce energy bills by up to 50%. – Department of Energy Cool Roof / Cool Wall systems will eventually pay for themselves and continue to pay a premium.
  14. 14. Sustainable Facilities Downsizes Cooling Equipment-A reflective roof / wall system can reduce peak cooling demand by 10-15%. As a result the building owner may be able purchase a smaller, more efficient and less expensive cooling system.-EPA Existing cooling systems will not have to work as hard to maintain the same comfort levels and may require less maintenance.
  15. 15. Advanced Ceramic Coatings  Qualify for LEED Credits  Lower energy consumption  Provide durable / flexible surfaces  Protect from Ultra-violet degradation  Eliminates/minimizes roof tear-off.  Sustainable, Renewable, lower life-cycle cost.
