CIA Gets Green, Clinton Library Gets Greener

clintonlibrary2.jpgThe CIA is adopting green building designs and technology in its new campus facilities in northern Virginia. The building will have a green roof, with about 22,000 square feet of vegetation, and the agency said it will cut energy consumption 21 percent by using technologies such as occupancy sensors and energy-efficient appliances and equipment.

Indoor improvements include 60 percent more fresh air than standard buildings, carbon dioxide monitors that will provide fresh air when necessary, and individual lighting controls. Its water-saving technologies, including waterless urinals, will result in 40 percent savings of potable water. The agency said the new building designs have earned silver and gold certificates in the LEED rating system.

Meanwhile, the already environmentally-friendly Clinton Presidential Center has earned the platinum rating for its LEED certification, thanks in part to its agreement with Green Mountain Energy Company’s BeGreen division. Green Mountain Energy worked with the Clinton Center to offset 100 percent of its electricity consumption with renewable energy credits.
