Actual EUI vs. Design vs. Baseline
Through December 2007
|What is EUI and how do we calculate this?|
EnergyStar Target Finder
EnergyStar used CNT actual energy use and occupancy data to benchmark its performance compared to similar buildings.
CNT has been monitoring its building performance since receiving Platinum in 2005, and the good news is: CNT is doing pretty well. According to the US EPA Energy Star Target Finder, better than 90% of similar buildings.
CNT wanted to show that a high performing green building could be achieved 1) by renovating an existing building rather than new construction and 2) renovate to the highest LEED standard at a cost comparable to standard renovation.
CNT believes that the cornerstone of green is energy efficiency. And that a green building in an efficient location is as important as a green building itself. Therefore its building performance focuses on building energy use and from staff commute energy use.
Skylights provide natural daylight to CNT's office space. The open floor plan and bright colors, as well as high indoor air quality help make this an attractive work place.
