  • TL: Can we have static slide still readable and printable?
  • TL: Clarify: Growth is still annual 50% rate in 2009
  • If it Doesn't Perform, It's Not a Green Building!

    1. 1. If It Doesn’t Perform, It Can’t Be Green! ©2012 Yudelson Associates Jerry Yudelson Yudelson Associates
    2. 2. Take-AwaysGreen buildings are important forcontrolling CO2 emissionsMany buildings do not perform aspredicted or as neededWithout reporting actual performance,the entire exercise will be wasted © 2009 Yudelson AssociatesWater use an increasing concern
    3. 3. 8 Testable Propositions• Green building vital in the global carbon picture• Green building growing rapidly in all sectors• Green building cost-effective by almost any measure• Many green buildings not performing as predicted• Building energy performance reports all vitally needed• Buildings must measure total carbon performance• Zero-net-energy buildings are feasible today © 2009 Yudelson Associates• Water the next big issue
    4. 4. Green Building Important for Carbon Reduction © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    5. 5. Our Opportunity to Build Green Current US building stock is approx. 300 billion sf. Over the next 30 years: • 52 billion sf will beBillions of Square Feet demolished • 150 billion sf will be remodeled • 150 billion sf will be new construction © 2009 Yudelson Associates From 2005 to 2035, three-quarters of U.S. building stock will be new or renovated
    6. 6. Green Buildings Make Money Sense © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    7. 7. Business Case for Green is Proven Financial/economic return Risk mitigation Marketing/public relations Productivity/health gains Recruitment/retention Sustainability concernsASU Biodesign Institute B LEED © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    8. 8. Potential Impact of Rapid Greening• 14% reduction in CO2, 2025 vs. 2005• NPV of green building: $650 billion in U.S. – 5x to 10x cost premium• 2020 Prediction: – Green buildings 95% of new construction – Green retrofits are 75% of all retrofits © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    9. 9. Green Building Is Growing Rapidly © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    10. 10. Green Building Statistics 30,000+ LEED registered projects (Dec. 2011) 10,000+ LEED certified projects (Dec. 2011) 175,000+ LEED Accredited Professionals OREGON HEALTH & SCIENCE © 2009 Yudelson Associates UNIVERSITY“In God We Trust; All Others Must Bring Data.” -W. Edwards Deming
    11. 11. Building Energy as a Carbon Solution Reducing energy use in buildings is the only Life Cycle Cost-positive carbon mitigation solution 25% of total carbon solution can come from buildings Key issue today is finance, not economicsChoosing Green © 2009 Yudelson AssociatesChoosing Green
    12. 12. Building Energy Performance Reports Needed © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    13. 13. Without Performance Reporting, We Know Nothing• “What gets measured, gets managed”• If building energy use is this important to our collective future, why not know what’s going on?• Without reports, we are flying blind/can’t fix• Why should governments put their faith in green © 2009 Yudelson Associates building without performance reports?

    16. 16. What’s the Issue?• Average savings is 35% vs. standard (Kats)• BUT, about 25% underperform• One LEED Platinum building: – Modeled at 61% savings – Performs at 48% savings• Underperforming buildings harm validity of © 2009 Yudelson Associates green building
    17. 17. Buildings Must Measure Carbon Performance © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    18. 18. Total Carbon Emissions Count • Total carbon emissions should be the only energy points in green rating schemes; this means: – 80% reductions with new buildings – 40% in older buildings • Relative improvement (%) needs to be retired • Real performance assessment © 2009 Yudelson Associates – Buildings will be de-rated
    19. 19. Europeans Measure Total Carbon Emissions © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    20. 20. ZerO-Net-Energy (ZONE) Buildings Feasible Today © 2009 Yudelson Associates
    21. 21. Learning from Lean Manufacturing• Lean Themes – Boeing 767: $130 million ea. • Each plane performs identically • Compare with two 350,000-SF buildings – Reduce energy & water use/carbon footprint – Eliminate waste – Build in resiliency – Need to make champagne on a beer budget! © 2009 Yudelson Associates • =>Process changes – Key issue: get green cost premium down to zero, using integrated design process
    22. 22. How Much Energy Should A Building Use? • European stretch goal: 100-150 kWh/m2 PRIMARY energy use • U.S. Average: 400 kWh/m2/a (2003) – 50% better than average still not good enough! – 60% to 90% required © 2009 Yudelson Associates – 2030 Challenge
    23. 23. Research: The World’s Greenest Buildings• LEED Platinum (or equivalent)• Built since 2003• >50,000 sq.ft.• Non residential• Provide energy data for one year• Water data, as available © 2009 Yudelson Associates

    29. 29. Water the Next Big Issue© 2009 Yudelson Associates
    30. 30. Preventing Urban Water Crises • Urban water crises are likely to increase in frequency, magnitude & duration • Good design & practice can reduce water use +50% in buildings • Retrofits can reduce water use 35% to 75% • Australia is the case © 2009 Yudelson Associates study, the testing ground – 150 liters/capita/day – U.S: 150 gallons/cap/day!
    31. 31. Water Design Standards • Control irrigation/cooling tower water use • Look at entire water cycle – Match quality with use • U.S. good practice – 600 L/m2/year – 15 gals/sq.ft./year • Australian best practices: – 400 L/m2/a • No cooling tower © 2009 Yudelson Associates • German averages: – 200 L/m2/a

    35. 35. The Future is Green, But… If you want to score, run to where the ball is headed, not to where it is. Ask yourself and your clients: how green will the built environment be in 2015 to 2020? Non-performing green buildings will pay a © 2009 Yudelson Associates penalty in that market!
