With New York City’s energy benchmarking and disclosure law now providing a wealth of data about the energy use of large buildings in NYC, it has become more evident that some LEED-certified buildings use more energy than typical buildings of similar size and age. But these green buildings often also provide additional services like on-site black water re-use, conditioned ducted make-up air, and humidification/dehumidification to improve indoor air quality and local water resources. This session will review available data and information about energy use profiles of some of the green buildings, and the implications of the results.
