Hi All,

I am pursuing this credit for a LEED v4 Core and Shell project and am having trouble determining which systems require meters. The credit requirements state "Install advanced energy metering for all base building energy sources used by the building." Which I understand to be Electrical and Natural Gas meters for this building.

However, later in the Reference Guide it states "Base building energy consumption includes all building systems and equipment in the core and shell scope of work. Examples include central plants, elevators and escalators, interior and exterior lighting, receptacle equipment, and HVAC equipment that serves core space, such as parking garages, lobbies, corridors, and restrooms." How does one determine which systems require meters? Is it sufficient to have meters on the systems listed above, or are we expected to include additional meters for other systems not listed.

Your assistance would be much appreciated.
