NBI study shows LEED buildings save energy


A study performed by the New Buildings Institute (NBI) found that, on average, LEED-NC buildings are delivering anticipated savings. LEED energy use is similar to predictions—25% to 30% better than the national average. Average savings increase for the higher LEED levels, with Gold/Platinum buildings approaching the interim goal of Architecture 2030.

The study also demonstrates that there is a correlation between increasing levels of LEED certification and increased energy savings. Gold and Platinum LEED certified buildings have average energy savings approaching 50%.
