The LEED Credit for Energy Efficiency is a challenge using Trace and most
likely another energy simulation software.  The savings is based on $ and
not energy or KW or BTUH savings.  The application using the energy souce of
"hot springs" water from nature that is priced by the Federal government as
if it were potable water makes the comparison form the base case to the
proposed case uneconomical but has an energy saving of 42% from the source
energy comparison.  The application is the use of the hot springs water for
"Bathhouse" spa water.  
Any comments???
