Getting to 50 Buildings Database
Many projects have already approached or surpassed the high level of performance required to use 50 percent less energy than conventional buildings. But the task of tracking down who’s done what, and with what result, can be cumbersome and time consuming.
The Getting to 50 Buildings Database, a resource in the suite of Advanced Buildings® technical tools and resources, helps streamlines your research efforts by providing a central online location for information on buildings that have successfully met that performance test.
The Getting to 50 Database is a free resource and is searchable by a variety of criteria including: location, use, size and energy use.
There are no technical barriers, and few financial ones, to restrict the energy efficiency of most commercial construction from being at least 50% better than current code requirements. However, there is limited practical guidance for design teams who may be ready to consider advanced building performance.
