Breakdown of the Points Earned for Energy and Atmosphere

Hogue Tech uses high-performance glazing and wall insulation, in conjunction with chilled beam technologies, and heated and cooled floor slabs to reduce energy demands from heating and cooling needs. The building uses ventilation air recovery units to preheat or cool incoming air. Additionally, a transpired solar collector provides passive solar heating during the winter. The building also has solar photovoltaic and roof-mounted evacuated tube solar collectors that supply energy and reduce reliance on the local energy grid. Hogue Technology's lighting needs are supplied by high-performance LEDs and fluorescents which are coupled with occupancy sensors to ensure that they are only used when they are needed. The total energy savings is 27% with about 3% of the total energy cost being offset by renewable sit-generated energy.
