Description

This document establishes approved methodology for quantifying greenhouse gas emission reductions from energy efficiency measures implemented in commercial and institutional buildings. This quantification protocol can be used by project developers to quantify greenhouse gas emission reductions resulting from the implementation of energy conservation measures resulting from changes in management practices and/or actual building improvements in new and retrofit projects. Emissions reductions are calculated as a difference in energy use in the project condition compared to the baseline. New builds are required to establish a baseline based on applicable building codes and a project condition that incorporates changes beyond these minimum standards. Retrofit projects are required to establish a baseline based on a greater of one full calendar year or one full operating cycle of data for actual building operations. Any changes in baseline conditions such as weather or building occupancy will require re-establishing the baseline to ensure all offset credits generated result from real reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
