The Energy Performance Protocol for Targeted Commercial (EPP-TC) is designed for projects that involve individual or smaller sets of energy conservation measures (ECM) that focus on only one or a handful of building end-uses, such as lighting, controls, HVAC replacement, etc. EEP-TC makes allowances for alternative and simplified approaches to technical underwriting and engineering, providing a standardized framework that is scaled for energy efficiency projects with less complexity and financial risk.
These targeted projects typically affect only a portion of the building’s end-uses, and have greater budget constraints, such that requirements for baselining, savings projection, commissioning, and measurement and verification, must be targeted and streamlined. While important to the project’s development and success, these components must be scaled appropriately, such that their inclusion in these targeted projects do not overly burden the project budget.
The ICP Energy Performance Protocol for Targeted Commercial makes allowances for alternative and /or targeted approaches with respect to the balance of technical rigor and risk, providing a standardized framework for energy efficiency projects with less complexity or financial constraints while continue to provide standards and consistency.
