Technical Clarification Number
If the project team claims a maximum of 50% energy savings for carbon monoxide sensors then it is not required that the project team provide a further calculation to prove the saving. However should the project team claim a saving greater than 50% then it is required that additional information and a detailed calculation is provided per the calculation methodology included within the modelling protocol.
