Renewable Revolution: A Blueprint for Carbon Reductions in LEED
GreenCE’s mission is to support the necessary transition to a sustainable built environment by empowering design professionals to address the environmental, economic, and social impacts of buildings. GreenCE’s course catalog includes LEED exam preparation, continuing education to maintain your AIA or LEED credential, as well as specialty education focused on topics such as ADA/Barrier-Free requirements. We are committed to designing the highest quality continuing education programs in the construction industry.
In a world where climate change rages unchecked, the skies weep acid rain, monstrous storms destroy coastal cities, vibrant communities turn into desert wastelands, millions flee their homes, entire species go extinct, and ecosystems collapse. Renewable energy can play a vital role in addressing these challenges and mitigating the worst effects of climate change. In this course, we explore how renewable energy can help reduce carbon emissions for LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C projects and reduce environmental impacts.
- Describe how renewable energy can help reduce carbon emissions for LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C projects and reduce environmental impacts.
- Discuss how the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C Renewable Energy credit can help reduce carbon emissions and enhance a building's resilience.
- Compare On-Site Renewable Energy Systems to Off-Site Renewables for LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C projects and how they can help reduce carbon emissions for a sustainable building.
- Review how the EPA’s Guide to Purchasing Green Power can help project teams achieve the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C Renewable Energy credit.
