MEP: Information Gathering - Tools and Examples

This section provides a selection of useful templates, tools and guidance presentations related to the information gathering stage.

This includes supporting onsite visits and site surveys to collect, capture and verify information. A site baseline estimator is also provided, which is useful where detailed information may not yet be available until additional sub-metering arrangements are in place.

While this section provides details of the types of information which should be collected from a complex site, it is equally applicable for smaller sites comprising a single building (although the source of information may be accessed in a different way – i.e. from a central repository rather than located onsite).
