Energy Lab at Hawaii Preparatory Academy

This is a case study for by Greensource Magazine for the new Energy Lab at Hawaii Prep Academy. The building recently became the 3rd Living Building Challenge certification in the world. Amazingly, the energy modelling conducted for this building actually underestimated the energy efficiency measures. After one year of operation, the building has consumed only a little more than half of the energy expected, and exports about 60% of the electricity generated by PV back on to the grid! For those of you unfamiliar with Greensource, it's a terrific bimonthly magazine that usually features 5 case studies, as well as other new products and ideas right up our alley in the MSSD program.
