Sub-metering technologies – Compliance Principle

Where it can be demonstrated that alternative sub-metering technologies can meet or exceed the capabilities of systems set out in the BREEAM guidance, subject to approval, these can also be considered compliant.

It is the role of the Assessor and the project team to provide evidence and justification in a compliance principle query (see KBCN1555).

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.
