USGBC’s Building Performance Partnership (BPP) engages commercial and residential LEED building owners and managers in an effort to optimize the performance of buildings through data collection, analysis and action. This partnership among USGBC and the thousands of LEED project owners will result in the population of a comprehensive green building performance database, enable standardization of reporting metrics and analytics, and establish new performance benchmarks.
USGBC’s BPP participants are eligible for annual performance reports, report cards and real-time data interfaces to aid in their building performance goals. Together, USGBC and BPP participants will transform the way the world views building operations.

Option 2: Building Performance Partnership
Homeowner must enroll in the USGBC Building Performance Partnership (BPP) for all applicable utility accounts, prior to submitting for LEED Certification.
Case 2: Multi-Family
1. Install an advanced energy monitoring system for each unit that meets the following requirements:

The homepage for the LEED Pilot Credit Library. The LEED Pilot Credit Library is intended to facilitate the introduction of new prerequisites and credits to LEED. This process will allow USGBC to test and refine credits through LEED 2009 project evaluations before they are sent through the balloting process for introduction into LEED.
Background for the LEED Pilot Credit Library is provided in this foundational document.
How do i as the Homeowner, "enroll in the USGBC Building Performance Partnership (BPP) for all applicable utility accounts, prior to submitting for LEED Certification."? By registering for the pilot credit, was that enough or does my LEED green rater enroll?
Has anyone ever certified a multi-family construction project? Just wanted to see how the process was and if we are on top of everything.
Nate, it would help to answer your question if you had anything more specific you were wondering about. Thanks.
I just saw the announcement that Wegowise is offering a one-year trial to LfH certified projects. Has anyone tried it? https://usgbc.wegowise.com/
Details on what the LEED pilot credit library is and how to use it.
