Take the Green Building Council’s Washington headquarters. Replete with the group’s top green-energy accolade, the platinum LEED certification, the USGBC’s main base comes in at 236 EUI. The average EUI for uncertified buildings in the capital? Just 199.
Certified buildings’ average comes in at 205 EUI, still less efficient than that didn’t take home the ultimate green trophy.My method of policy implementation: 1. Plan. 2. Build/implement. 3. Measure the results of the program. 4. Correct: If it fails either kill it or fire everyone involved and find a way to do it right. This one looks like it needs to be ended.
Will the greenies admit their errors?
