Alternative sub-metering technologies

Where it can be evidenced that alternative metering technologies can meet or exceed the capabilities of systems listed in the BREEAM standards, these alternatives can be used instead.

It is the Assessor’s role, with the help of a relevant specialist to provide evidence and justification of capabilities in a compliance principle query (see KBCN1555). Where approved, these technologies or standards will be added to this KBCN.

The following metering standards or technologies are currently recognised as alternatives to pulsed output meters:

  • M-bus.
    I.e. systems that comply with the EN 13757 series of standards.
    Also includes systems complying with the OMS (Open Metering System) standards.
