New edition of TM39: Building energy metering published

25 November 2009

TM39 Building energy metering provides best practice guidance for those responsible for the design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of building services energy metering systems.

Meters that are selected, installed and commissioned correctly will provide the information needed for the effective monitoring and targeting that is an essential part of good energy management.
This new edition of TM39, published by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), provides a more general approach to energy metering for both new and existing buildings, allowing designers and facilities managers to develop a metering strategy which is tailored to meet the particular requirements of a specific project. A step-by-step method is provided to assist in selecting appropriate ways of metering energy use.
The document covers compliance with relevant building regulations, meeting statutory requirements for DECs, and also takes a look at future legislation such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment and changes to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. TM39 is essential reading for designers, owner/occupiers, landlords (and the letting agents who act on their behalf), tenants, facilities managers, and anyone else who can benefit from the energy data that meters and submeters can provide.
The new edition of TM39 Building energy metering is available now priced at £22 for CIBSE members and £44 for non-members.
