Pilot Credit 67: Energy & Atmosphere Prerequisite 2 Alternative Compliance Path, or Energy Jumpstart, rewards significant improvement in building energy performance. It enables projects that have documented substantial energy performance improvement to satisfy the requirements of the Energy & Atmosphere Prerequisite 2: Minimum Energy Efficiency Performance and pursue LEED at the Certified level.
Ten additional pilot credits have been introduced into the library, and can be viewed online via usgbc.org/pilotcreditlibrary. The library currently contains 36 credits exploring everything from the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of building assemblies to bird collision deterrence.
