Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building rating system maintained by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). ClimateStudio supports the calculation of LEED v4 Daylight and Quality Views credits. Both modules support one-click generation of PDF reports, which can be submitted directly to USGBC in lieu of filling out the online Daylight and Quality Views Calculator.
Daylight credits are calculated using the Daylight Availability workflow, which includes presets for both Option 1 (sDA-based) and Option 2 (illuminance-based) compliance pathways.
