This credit sets up infrastructure for building owners and managers who want to actively monitor energy consumption in their buildings. Advanced energy metering provides a granular level of energy use data, which building operators can use to proactively keep building performance in tune during operations.
While there are compliance paths that are applicable to smaller and simpler building types, owners of larger and more energy intensive buildings are likely to see the greatest value from the application of this credit.
