Green Path Criteria Green Path Criteria Presentation Transcript

  •  
  • The purpose of the Green Path Program is to encourage, and to facilitate, voluntary design and construction of energy-efficient buildings in Albuquerque that substantially exceed code minimum.
      • Voluntary
      • Incentivized
      • Commercial and Residential
      • Public and Private Sector Buildings
    THE GREEN PATH PROGRAM
    • NEW CONSTRUCTION
    • AND MAJOR RENOVATIONS
      • Must substantially exceed code minimum
      • LEED Gold or
      • LEED Silver with minimum 6 energy points
        • 4 points minimum in Credit Option 1 (energy efficiency)
        • 2 additional points in Credit Option 1, Credit Option 2 (on-site renewable energy), and/or Credit Option 6 (grid green power)
    GREEN PATH CRITERIA COMMERCIAL
  • GREEN PATH CRITERIA COMMERCIAL
    • SHELL BUILDINGS
      • Must substantially exceed code minimum
      • LEED Gold or
      • LEED Silver with minimum 6 energy points
        • 4 points minimum in Credit Option 1 (energy efficiency)
        • 2 additional points in Credit Option 1, Credit Option 2 (on-site renewable energy), Credit Option 5.2 (tenant sub-metering) and/or Credit Option 6 (grid green power)
  • GREEN PATH CRITERIA COMMERCIAL
    • TENANT DEVELOPMENTS
      • Must substantially exceed code minimum
      • LEED Gold or
      • LEED Silver with minimum 6 energy points
        • 4 points minimum (3 if in Green Path shell) in Credit Option 1 (optimize energy performance)
        • 2 additional points in Credit Option 1, Credit Option 3 (measurement and payment accountability), and/or Credit Option 4 (grid green power)
  • GREEN PATH CRITERIA RESIDENTIAL
      • Must substantially exceed code minimum

    • Credit assessment describing how points will be achieved
    • Summary report of energy modeling including input and relevant output
    • Copy of green power contract if grid green power point(s) will be pursued
    • Verification of compliance with Fundamental Commissioning requirements
    • Executive summary of project prepared by LEED AP
    GREEN PATH APPLICATION COMMERCIAL

    • Confirmation that HERS rater will perform (or monitor) and will validate results of:
      • duct leakage test,
      • building envelope leakage test, and/or
      • thermal bypass inspections
    • if those points are being pursued
