Energy efficiency improvements in the building sector can yield significant financial and environmental benefits included reduced energy costs, decreased greenhouse gas emissions, improved occupant health and increased local employment. However, long standing market and policy barriers stand in the way of achieving these potential benefits at scale. Latin America, facing increasing populations in urban cities, could reduce global energy demand by one-third if available energy efficiency best practices were implemented widely.
The WELL Building Standard is an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring the performance of building features that impact health and wellbeing. WELL Certification begins with registration through WELL Online. Once registered, GBCI will assign a WELL Assessor to the project. The WELL Assessor is integral to the certification process.
By requiring the development of key performance indicators and a system for tracking and continuously improving them, ISO 14001, the International Organization for Standardization’s voluntary benchmark for environmental management, provides a strong foundation for measuring and analyzing environmental performance. Layering PEER on top of this robust groundwork “turbocharges” a project, ensuring sustainable power system performance and accelerating the transformation of our electricity sector.
