Our comercial interior project is located in a building that has photovoltaic panels that feed the central chilled water plant.
1. Energy meters for the chilled water consumed by each space supplied by the chiller, including our CI project
2. Energy meters to measure the amount of energy supplied by the PV installation and the utility network
In order to claim points for the Renewable Energy credit, would it be acceptable to assume that the proportion of the cooling energy consumed by our project equals our renewable energy consumption?
We would perform the following calculation:
CI Renewable Energy Consumption =
Metered Cooling Energy consumed *
XX% of cooling energy generated by PV
Thank you in advanced for your help!
