Credit 4.1 - Optimize Energy Performance


Example for energy efficiency compared to Baseline Building:

Power required for HVAC (chiller) = 145 kW


Power required for lighting & elevators = 100 kW

Therefore, % Energy usage for HVAC is = 59%

Cooling load for a conventional AC / 20m2 = 12,000 BTU


= 1 TR

Area where AC is required (approximate) = 3,300 m2


Total TR required (tons of refrigerant) = 165 TR
Energy efficiency rate (EER) = 9
Factor for efficiency = 0.70
Power required (conventional) = 314 kW

Power required for the proposed system = 145 kW

Percentage energy improvement = 1 - proposed building performance


baseline building performance

Percentage energy improvement = 54%

Expected total improvement (lighting included) = 50%


Expected points 9

Credit 4.2 - Renewable Energy


Example for solar energy generation:

Expected solar roof area = 400 m2


Expected effective solar roof area = 200 m2
Power generation rate /m2 = 158 Watt
Power generation total = 32 kW
Total power requirement = 245 kW

Percentage power supplied by solar (renewable) = 13%


Expected points 8

Credit 4.3 - Additional Commissioning

Additional commissioning will be done as specified by the green rating


system and relevant Clauses will be included in the Contract.

Expected points 1

Credit 4.4 - Ozone Depletion

Proposed HVAC and fire suppression system do not include HCFC or Halons.
