USGBC Wants to ‘Bring LEED to Life’

April 21, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Scot HorstScot Horst, senior vice president of LEED at the US Green Building Council, said LEED Dynamic Plaque, is currently installed at seven buildings worldwide.  “Our goal is to bring the LEED program to life,” Horst told attendees at the Rocky Mountain Green conference in Denver last week.

Horst, the chief inventor of the new measuring tool for LEED-certified buildings, said LEED Dynamic Plaque is “a paradigm change from recertification to on-going certification; it’s based on real outcomes instead of tracking documentation.”

The software system built on top of LEED online is available for use as a subscription.

Horst said USGBC has just finished the terms and conditions for LEED Dynamic Plaque and 300 people have expressed interest in trying the software. He’s hoping for “several hundred” installations by the end of 2014. “The more buildings we have, the more beneficial the score,” he added.
