heal.abstract
This thesis was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Systems at the International Hellenic University. The purpose was to compare two of the several rating systems that exist in many countries for the certification of Green Buildings. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) developed in the United States and the Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environmental Efficiency (CASBEE) developed in Japan were critically analyzed and their weaknesses identified. At the same time, it was found that some strengths belonging to either one could be incorporated into the other to improve its flaws. This paper would not be possible without the guidance of Professor Isaac A. Meir, who did his best to advise and support me with honest and meaningful feedback.
