The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) recently announced three changes to their suite of energy certification programs.
- ZERO ENERGY CERTIFICATION IS SIMPLIFIED AND READY FOR THE MAINSTREAM: The program streamlined the certification process and documentation requirements, including a refined focus on energy and eliminating the need for a site visit.
- REVISED REVEAL LABEL: CLEARER, EXPANDED CONTENT, AND NOW A VERIFICATION TOOL FOR THE 2030 CHALLENGE: ILFI updated the label to include a wider array of metrics, including Energy Use Intensity (EUI), the Zero Energy Performance Index, and reduction in energy use from baseline. The new Reveal label is a simple and sophisticated tool for building owners to demonstrate their high-performance buildings.
- NEW ENERGY PETAL AND ZERO ENERGY BUILDING CERTIFICATION EXCEPTION ALLOWING OFFSITE RENEWABLES: To add flexibility for projects that can't achieve net zero energy performance, ILFI introduced a new exception that broadens the range of projects that can be certified.
