Cape Charles Sustainable Technology Industrial Park (STIP), located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, is an eco-industrial park that is taking advantage of a number of energy technologies, including solar energy systems.
Buildings in the STIP must attain a minimum Silver ranking using the LEED ranking system. There are also minimum standards of performance related to "Sustainability Criteria." The Sustainability Criteria are designed to measure an occupant’s performance within the categories of environmental sustainability and social sustainability. Each category is comprised of a list of criteria, and Sustainability Criteria Points are awarded on the basis of compliance with and satisfaction of these criteria. One of the environmental criteria is:
"Percentage of Occupant’s day-to-day operations devoted to research and development of new technologies on energy efficiency, renewable energy, pollution prevention, industrial ecology and/or other emerging sustainability concepts." A range of 10-25% earns one point; 26-40% earns two points; and 41% or more earns three points.
