John Carmody (Center for Sustainable Building Research) is cited in Ryan Schuster's article for Prairie Business Magazine, about the advantages and disadvantages of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for regional projects. "It is unclear whether LEED will be the dominant standard in the future or if competitors will emerge addressing regional and other issues," Carmody told Schuster. "One important trend is the need to move from strictly point-based rating systems toward requiring performance-based outcomes. Architecture 2030 is an example of this where there is a specific metric that must be met for energy and carbon emissions. Another trend will place greater emphasis on actual performance during operation, not just the design phase. LEED and other guidelines and rating systems are all adapting to address these issues."
