As part of the USGBC’s commitment to staying fresh and updating LEED v4.1, they recently released the Zero Energy Performance Index (zEPI) Pilot ACP.
“The Zero Energy Performance Index (zEPI) Pilot Alternative Compliance Path (ACP) was developed specifically for the Canadian market. It provides a new approach to how energy performance is evaluated, adding flexibility, aligning with local energy codes, and better ensuring LEED buildings contribute meaningfully to Canada’s climate goals.”
This new approach has simplified the performance generator baseline and we are excited to apply this to some of our projects.
Check out more details, including an informative video, on the USGBC website.
