Submetering

Submetering is a method of using multiple meters to collect real-time energy data from any source in a building (electricity, water, gas, or other uses such as district steam and chilled water). Submeters can measure consumption by space, equipment type, or source to capture information that is more granular than the information gathered at the whole-building level. Submetering also allows building management to bill tenants for their individually measured utility usage.
