LEED 2012 to require real-time energy, water use reporting

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is implementing major upgrades in LEED certification standards for buildings next year. The LEED 2012 rating system, set to launch in November 2012, will contain features to make sure buildings function as intended, and improve over time.

Building owners will be required to report data on the building's energy and water use, using real-time reporting technology. Owners of LEED-certified buildings will have to apply for re-certification every five years. For more information, click here. BD+C
