This event has reached capacity. Join us next month on 11/18 for our next BD+C webinar viewing!

Join the USGBC Illinois Chapter's Chicago Branch for an in-person webinar on Energy Consumption & EA C1: Top 10 Energy Efficiency Measures for Load Reduction on October 21 @ 12:00 and earn 1.5 BD+C LEED Specific GBCI CE hours!

The Illinois Chapter has purchased a subscription to offer USGBC's archived webinars in group settings in order to offer LEED Specific credential maintenance opportunities to our members. One friday each month, you will have the opportunity to earn 1.5 LEED Specific hours at one of these in-person webinar viewings.

BD+C 302 - Energy Consumption & EA C1: Top 10 Energy Efficiency Measures for Load Reduction
The first step for reducing energy consumption of a building is to reduce the energy loads on the building. Consideration of load reduction techniques early in the design phase often comes at low or no added cost. During this webinar you will learn about best practices and top 10 strategies to reduce the energy loads on buildings. The session will highlight energy simulation as a design tool and key to successfully implementing EA Credit 1. The webinar will feature commercial building projects certified under the LEED for New Construction rating system.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize energy load reduction techniques that support energy efficient building design and help earn credits under LEED NC: EACredit 1.
  • Assess opportunities for integrating energy modeling across all stages of the decision making and planning process.
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of energy modeling as a design tool for complying with LEED criteria.
  • Discuss cost impact of load reduction measures by evaluating case specific examples.
