Light Reading LEDs and LEED Certification

November 21, 2014

There are four different LEED Certification levels- Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. LED lighting can play a huge role in bringing a building to LEED standards.

There are three categories of LEED Certification that can be effected by the use of LED lighting. These categories are:

Energy and Atmosphere- promotes energy performance for buildings
Indoor Environment Quality- promotes air quality within the building and daylight views

Innovation and Design Process- promotes the sourcing of innovative products

By understanding the guidelines behind LEED Certification, architects and designers can strive for greener and more efficient buildings.
