Have questions about LEED v4? We have answers.

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

Are you an energy technical solution provider wondering how you can help LEED projects achieve the new Demand Response credit?  Are you a practitioner who wants to know why air testing is valued at two points when the flush-out is valued at 1 point for the EQ: Indoor Air Quality Assessment credit? Or perhaps you're a building owner who wants to know overall how the changes in the water credit category of LEED v4 will effect your existing building's pursuit of LEED.

Whatever your question, log onto Twitter May 22 from noon to 1 p.m. to get answers from USGBC's very own VP of LEED Technical Development, Brendan Owens, who will be tweeting from our @usgbc handle. To join the conversation, make sure you are following @usgbc and use #LEEDv4 when asking a question. He'll be ready to answer a wide-range of LEED questions, from the super-technical questions to the more general.

And don't forget – the LEED ballot opens June 1, 2013, for all those who have registered.

Hi Layne - LEED v4 opens for registration at Greenbuild 2013. Projects have the option of registering to use either LEED 2009 or LEED v4 until June 1, 2015 (so, certification for LEED 2009 will end somewhere around 2020).

Hi Christina, What does "certificationi for LEED 2009 will end somewhere around 2020" means? And, for projects in China, what is the deadline to register them under LEED 2009?

Hi Shi - The deadline to register projects under LEED 2009 is June 27, 2015. Since this article was posted we've also been able to pinpoint a sunset date for certification. That is June 30, 2021. Check out this article for more details
