A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF LEED
Clackamas High School, located in Clackamas, Oregon, is one of the greenest schools in the nation.
It was designed using performance based fees, which are earned by the architects and engineers depending on the savings in energy by efficient design.
Most of its points were earned in the Energy & Atmosphere catagory for Optimizing Energy Performance (tiered system with 8 points for 50%), Measurement & Verification, and Green Power.
Through computer and physical modeling, the total energy cost was expected to be 44 percent less than the Oregon Energy Building Code requirements (which are stricter than those of ASHRE).
Two full-scale classroom mockups were built to test daylighting and electric lighting design, and natural ventilation components of the heating and cooling design.
According to the architect, the most cost-effective measures considered were building orientation, window size and placement, shading, and space planning.
The electricity load is limited by sensors and dimmer controls.
Air conditioning is provided only in spaces such as the media center, administration, theater, etc.
Most areas rely on natural ventilation by convection with fan coil backup units.
The building is organized along an east-west axis for optimal natural lighting and ventilation.

領先能源與環境設計之比較分析（Leadership in Energy and Enviromental Design, LEED）
其中大部份的分數都來自能源及大氣領域，有關有效能源利用（階梯系統有8分，佔其中50%）, 測量及確認, 及綠色能源等方面．
透過電腦及物理模型，預期總能源成本將低於奧勒崗能源建築法（該法規較美國暖通工程師協會規定的標準嚴格）規定值的44％．（American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, ASHRE）
根據建築師的說法，最符合成本效益的方式是先考慮建築物的方位, 窗戶大小及配置, 遮光及空間規劃．
只有資訊中心, 行政機構, 大講堂等處才裝設空調系統．
