Yes LEED 2009 references a publication for district thermal energy that
is due out 4th quarter of 2009. I have not seen it yet or even know if
its been issued. You can find the reference by drilling thru the USGBC
site, LEED Resources, LEED Resources and Tools, LEED 2009, ...

I am not sure what to do with 2009 using the older document.

Hello, all.


So, I'm (still) working on an energy model involving District Steam and
Chilled Water, and am abiding by the LEED Document "Required Treatment
of District Thermal Energy in LEED-NC version 2.2 and LEED for Schools,"
as required by both LEED 2.2 and LEED 2009 (see


However, in looking at the document, it doesn't seem to take into
account the new point-structure.  According to one paragraph in the EA
credit 1 section, "The total number of EAc1 points achievable in Step 2
is limited to 4 points above the number determined in Step 1, up to a
maximum of 10 total points for the project."  Should these numbers be
changed (at least theoretically), to account for the potential of 19
points in the 2009 EAc1?


Has anyone encountered this, or know if a new revision of this paper is
in the works?
