3 What is Green Building? Green Building is… Opinion and Facts (with the usual disclaimers!) Integration of human needs and desires into a healthy whole system that supports and sustains the requirements of a healthy natural environment Consideration of the building as a whole system from conception, through design and construction and for the duration of the life of the building The building industry is the largest industry consumer of the worlds resources, consuming 36% of the worlds energy usage (Energy Information Administration

4 Green Building Design Issues These 6 elements are loosely based on considerations in the LEED Rating System for Green Buildings- commercial guidelines (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, developed by the US Green Building Council) Sustainable Site Issues Water Efficiency Issues Energy & Atmosphere Issues Materials & Resources Issues Indoor Environmental Quality Issues Maintenance and Operations

5 What is a Green Builder Program? Market movement Usually voluntaryNC plan is An incentive program for Builders and Owners Must meet specific requirements 30+ programs across the US and growing Residential, Commercial, State and General

6 Green Builder Program Examples EarthCraft House SunBuilt BuiltGreen Colorado

7 Successes and Opportunities Successes of Existing Builder Programs Broad, whole building approach Incorporate Owner Education with Builder Marketing support efforts Make the program mean something through consultation or verification Partnership between HBAs and non-profit support groups Opportunities for Builder Programs Incorporate more energy security and renewable energy focus into programs Some programs have renewables as 20% of their program, others it is less than 5%

8 Why Build Green? Energy Resource Conservation Indoor Air Quality Safety Affordability Security

9 Market Research-People Consumers are asking for it … Survey conducted by Professional Builder Magazine in 2000 and 2001

10 Market Research-Pocketbook Consumers believe they will get … Pocketbook Issues

11 Market Research-Planet Percent of Total Site Energy Consumption by End Use, 1990 RESIDENTIAL Buildings

12 Research-Planet How do Buildings effect Carbon Dioxide Emissions … and other greenhouse gas emissions?

15 Green Builder Program a Vision for NC So what about North Carolina?

16 A Green Builder Program for NC:

17 NC HealthyBuilt Homes Program a Vision for NC Program consists of … A Statewide Support Partner organization supporting several…. Community Based Partner organizations throughout the state Implementation has a local face and feel

18 CHECKLIST CATEGORIES Community Checklist Community Opportunities Development Opportunities North Carolina Checklist Site Opportunities Water Opportunities Energy Efficiency Opportunities-Building Envelope Energy Efficiency Opportunities-Comfort Systems Energy Efficiency Opportunities-Appliances, Lighting, Renewables Indoor Air Quality Opportunities Materials Opportunities Bonus Opportunities
