BASF has announced that its green demonstration home, the BASF Better Home, Better Planet: Near Zero Energy Home in Paterson, NJ, has been selected by the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) pilot testing program for the recently launched Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Homes (LEED-H) rating system. According to the USGBH, LEED-H is being developed with input from local and national stakeholder groups. It is a voluntary initiative promoting the transformation of the mainstream home building industry towards more sustainable practices that will provide a much-needed tool for homebuilders, homeowners and local governments for building environmentally sound, healthy, and resource-efficient places to live. Only twelve demonstration homes across the U.S. have been selected to undergo rigorous examination in the following areas: ENERGY STAR® Labeled Home; Durability Plan; Waste Management Plan; Site Protections; Owners Manual; and Health and Safety Measures.
