Why LEED and Beyond LEED?
Providing Value and Return on Investment

The 2016 Dayton Green Expo (DGE) Keynote Panel will take attendees starting with LEED, through the "Why?" (Value / ROI), of implementing LEED projects and what is beyond, specifically using the Living Building Challenge (LBC) system.  Each of these panelists have extensive experience in these topics, with Dan designing one of the very first fully operational LBC projects (Tyson), Alison's organization is currently constructing a LBC project (Cope) and Michael's University (Purdue) has finished evaluating why and how to build one and is working toward next steps.  All of these LBC efforts have had roots in LEED and this Keynote Panel will expound on their reasons for both LEED and Living Building Challenge projects.

Additional energy is wasted during the distribution of electricity to end users. CHP is on-site electricity generation that captures the heat that would otherwise be wasted to provide useful thermal energy that can be used for space heating, cooling, domestic hot water and industrial processes.
