Session 1: International Energy Efficiency Standards and Guidelines
This session provides an overview of the development of energy efficiency standards and guidelines in the U.S., Canada, Europe and other regions of the world. Also covered is a comparison and discussion of how these will help lead to the design and operation of High Performance Buildings.

Session 2: High Performance Building Design – What the Future holds for the Direction for our Industry
During the past two decades we have seen the growth and maturation of the green or high-performance building design concept. The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program was one of the main pioneers in this and ASHRAE’s Standard 189.1 helped evolve this concept into mandatory building codes. This session provides an overview of how building systems have evolved to meet the demands for green building design and where we are headed in the future in this arena. Also covered are topics such as the evolution of building codes to include green or sustainability features, how a building designer can include these concepts in their designs, the impact of new technologies such as a smart grid and BIM on the design, and discussion on how this will impact the industry.

Session 3: LEED Implementation on High Performance Building Design
This session provides an overview of the current development of LEED and updates on LEED version 4. Also covered are the new directions explored by the USGBC and the certification schemes under its umbrella. The session also presents the trends in LEED certification in Hong Kong and Greater China and outlines key specifics in applying LEED and high performance building design in the region.
