For our project we have selected Option 1: Energy and Water Data Release Form. Aside from creating an account at Energy Star and 'sharing' the empty facility file with the USGBC account, I have found very little help on this matter. Is this all we need to do for certification? Where do we get the data? How often do we have to report it? Who is responsible for this? Does the building owner need to designate someone to manually upload an excel sheet every month? Do we need to pay one of these automated reporting utilities? I feel like the USGBC has slipped this in late in the game without explanation; years after making this a requirement it is still poorly documented.
