Trane ENL: Energy Saving Strategies For LEED and the Energy Policy Act

This program discusses energy-saving strategies to implement for various HVAC system types, and quantifies the impact of each toward achieving LEED points under the “Optimize Energy Performance” credit. Discussion includes a detailed review of an energy modeling study conducted to demonstrate the potential energy cost savings (for various strategies, climate zones, and HVAC system types) for achieving LEED points and demonstrates how these same strategies can help the building owner qualify for tax deductions through the Energy Policy Act. The presentation provides design engineers with a better understanding of the “big picture” of building energy use, including the impact of the building envelope, lighting, plug loads, and processes and covers common mistakes made when modeling for LEED points. Continuing education credit for GBCI and AIA maintenance is available at
