We are working on a LEED v2009 school project in Germany which is equipped with VRV refrigerating outdoor units for cooling of some rooms so there is no cooling tower, no use of latent heat of the evaporative cooling of water and no district cooling in place. As the floor area is 19.886 m², the designated baseline system is System 7 and therefore the project is eligable to achieve the pilot credit WEpc94 No Cooling Tower.

As the project's design was already fixed in 2017 we are really happy that this Pilot credit was opened to v2009 projects in 2019, as we can now earn one more point without any additional costs.

So if you're still working on v2009 projects, it is possibly worth checking if the requirements for the Pilot No Coolng Tower are met.
