Each of these areas is further divided into some or all of the following fourteen areas that apply to each phase: general considerations; site planning and landscape design; daylighting; energy-efficient building shell; solar systems; energy-efficient lighting and electrical systems; energy-efficient mechanical and ventilation systems; environmentally sensitive building products and systems; indoor air quality; water conservation; recycling systems and waste management; transportation; commissioning and maintenance; and eco-education.
