GLRPPR Sector Resource: The LEED Plaque Unpacked: What a Decade of LEED Project Data Reveals About the Green Building Market

Title:
The LEED Plaque Unpacked: What a Decade of LEED Project Data Reveals About the Green Building Market

Abstract:
Ten years after the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)certification issued by the U.S. Green Building Council, more than 22,000 LEED certified commercial projects have collectively achieved over 1,000,000 point credits using the LEED criteria. These million-plus green building design, construction, procurement, and measurement decisions have been applied across 3 billion square feet in 150 countries, spanning the building's lifecycle to include all commercial property types and time-scale dimensions. This analysis synthesizes LEED project credit achievement in energy efficiency and efficiency-related measures across successive LEED New Construction (NC) rating system versions spanning over a decade. These results characterize the average LEED project achievement on energy efficiency measures. This first-of-its-kind LEED credit level analysis further depicts credit achievement ranges observed at each LEED tier [Certified, Silver, Gold, Platinum] for all new construction projects in the United States that certified to LEED between 2007 and 2013. A primary result of this research is to illuminate the uptake of energy efficiency measures of LEED projects. Equipped with this information -- along with future parallel insights in water efficiency, indoor air quality, etc. -- market actors and policymakers can make more informed and refined strategic decisions about how to best prioritize and drive green building outcomes using the LEED rating system.
