No refrigerant use – shell & core assessments

The credits for Pol 01 can be awarded if the asset requires no refrigerants as per the criteria.

In speculative assessments, future tenant systems are unknown. To award the credits, evidence must show that the asset has been designed to operate without the need for air-conditioning or comfort cooling for the conditioning of occupied spaces. One way to demonstrate this is to achieve the ‘Free cooling’ credit.

Only refrigerants used for occupant comfort are assessed. Do not assess any refrigerant use for process-related functions.
