Resources: LEED™ Presentation; Energy Usage Calculation spreadsheet

Read the LEED™ Microsoft® PowerPoint® Presentation to gain an understanding of the standard for green architecture.

Select the design of a home that uses standard architectural design or nonrenewable, inefficient energy guidelines.

Complete the Energy Usage Calculation spreadsheet. Use the Energy Usage Calculation spreadsheet to complete the following:

  • Determine the most efficient alternative energy design that would reduce the energy output through built-in calculation.
  • Compare the energy usage in the original to the new design of the chosen home.
