LEED Statistics As of March 2009

It’s remarkable the growth of both the USGBC and the LEED Green Building Standard over the past year. I just noticed a counter on the USGBC website with the following LEED statistics.

As of March 18, 2009:

77,434 LEED APs (80% US, 20% international)

17450 Registered Commercial Projects with 2122 Certified Projects

13836 Registered Residential Projects with 1304 Certified Projects

That is some remarkable growth. There are almost 8-10 times as many LEED projects in the works now as there have been in the USGBC’s 16 years of existence. That is happening during a very severe market downturn for new construction. Simply amazing.
