LEED Certification

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2000 to provide building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. With nearly 9 billion square feet of building space participating in the suite of rating systems and 1.6 million feet certifying per day around the world, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Upkeep Energy offers services in support of LEED Certification for existing buildings (LEED-EB).

Upkeep Energy offers services in support of LEED Certification for existing buildings (LEED-EB) in the following categories:

  • Energy and Atmosphere prerequisites and credits
  • Water Efficiency prerequisites and credits
  • Indoor Environmental Quality prerequisites and credits

Greenhouse Gas Reduction

There is a growing need to report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to develop strategies to reduce GHG. Upkeep Energy can work with the client to do a carbon footprint analysis, GHG inventory, and to identify GHG reduction opportunities. Upkeep Energy can also calculate the GHG reductions by implementing those strategies.

Renewable Energy Assessments

Upkeep Energy is able to identify renewable energy options, conduct feasibility assessments, and advise on how to incorporate renewables into the building mix to meet renewable energy goals and portfolio standards.
