Description

Climate Neighbor is a spreadsheet tool that estimates the benefits of energy-efficient, climate-friendly development in Chula Vista California. The City Energy Code recognizes the energy-saving potentials of community design and site planning, and CN is a tool for evaluating those savings and associated greenhouse gas emission reductions in large-scale development projects. Users describe a proposed development project, and select energy measures from a menu derived from LEED for Neighborhood Development rating system strategies. CN estimates energy savings and greenhouse gas emission reductions of the LEED-ND strategies in comparison to a baseline development scenario.
