When reading through the LEED re-certification guidelines it states that an ASHRAE energy audit must be done once every 5 years, however, it also states that the performance period is between the time that the building was initially certified to the time the building was registered for a re-certification. So if the energy audit was done in 2012 and the original certification was done in 2013 and the re-certification was registered in 2016 we shouldn't need to re-do the audit, but we won't be submitting the project till this year which is 2018. Because we are submitting so late will we have to perform the energy audit because the submission year is outside of the 5 year period, or can we still use the original energy audit because the performance period is within the 5 years?
