RESET® Energy Projects - Accreditation Process

The RESET Project accreditation process can be divided into 5 phases:

  1. Project Registration
  2. Documentation Audit
  3. Site Audit
  4. Data Audit
  5. Maintaining Certification

The following is a checklist process for RESET Energy Project Accreditation.

1. Registration and Invoicing

Registration starts the process for a project pursuing RESET Energy Project Accreditation.

Registration includes the project's basic information, terms and service agreements, and payment.

Submission Requirements

Documentation must include the following information:

  • Name of the Project
  • Address of the Project
  • Establish the Project Boundary
  • Size of the Project Boundary with Proof (floor plan drawings or lease agreement)
  • Project Owner information, including Contact Name and E-mail


RESET will provide an invoice within a week once documentation is confirmed to be completed.


Upon completion of the submission, an invoice will be issued for the project.


Upon completion of the submission, an invoice will be issued for the project.

The registration process is as follows:

  1. Go to https://cloud.reset.build/.
  2. Login or sign up if you don’t have an account.
  3. Register a project.
  4. Fill in registration information and submit project boundary floor plans.
  5. Receive registration acknowledgement and pricing.
  6. Submit payment to begin the Documentation Audit and Site Audit Process.
  7. Receive confirmation for completed Registration.

Please note that the preparation and submittal of project documents and performance data must be managed by a RESET Accredited Professional (AP). The RESET AP will also be responsible for all certification-related communication between the project owner and GIGA during the certification review process.

Please note that the RESET Energy AP curriculum is currently in development.

2. Documentation Audit

The Documentation Audit organizes the relevant project metadata for where the metering will be installed, along with information about how all the electrical wiring is connected.

Documentation Audit ensures that a project's proposed monitor deployment strategy meets the intent of RESET Energy. Passing the Documentation Audit is recommended prior to executing monitor deployment in a project.

Submission Requirements

Documentation must include the following information:

  • Specification sheet(s) for all Energy monitors deployed on the project, including manufacturer name, product name, and product model number/SKU.
  • RESET Accredited Data Provider platform to host and display the data.
  • Electrical plans/drawing indicating where the hardware is installed. Description of what is being measured, including how the setup is capturing 100% of the energy consumed (and produced) in the project boundary, along with what is not measured. Descriptions of sub-metering if applicable.


The Documentation Audit process is as follows:

  1. Go to https://cloud.reset.build/.
  2. In the Documentation Audit section, upload the required information.
  3. Submit to be reviewed.
  4. Receive Status on whether or not the Documentation Audit passed or failed. Projects are allowed a maximum of two submissions for Pass/Fail verification from RESET for the Documentation Audit.


RESET will need 2 weeks once documentation is submitted.

Pre-Accredited Certificate Awarded

Upon completion of the Documentation Audit, the project will now be RESET Pre-Accredited.

3. Site Audit

The Site Audit confirms the installation and connectivity of the monitoring equipment of the project.

The Site Audit ensures that a project has complied to all the monitor, data provider, and installation requirements for a RESET Energy Project. A Site Audit is required after a project has completed installation of monitors according to the approved deployment plan.

Submission Requirements

An initial site audit documentation is required to be submitted, including the following information:

  • Confirmed final Monitors and Data Provider.
  • Updated Electrical Plans with final installation.
  • Pictures of the monitor installations.
  • Confirm data is collected and being pushed to the RESET Cloud via the Data Provider.
  • A physical or virtual site inspection audit to confirm hardware installation locations.


Once installation is confirmed and documentation finalized, RESET will take approximately 2 weeks time to arrange for and complete the Site Audit.


  1. Go to https://cloud.reset.build/.
  2. Fill in, upload, and submit the Site Audit Documentation.
  3. Site Audit Documentation acknowledgement by RESET.
  4. Arrange and confirm a time for an On-Site/Virtual Inspection.
  5. On-Site/Virtual Inspection.
  6. Site Audit Pass/Fail acknowledgement.

4. Data Audit

The Data Audit is a continuous audit that involves keeping a record of the energy consumption and production in a project space.

Submission Requirements

No other submission is required other than:

  • Once installation is confirmed and documentation finalized, RESET will take approximately 2 weeks time to arrange for and complete the Site Audit.


The Data Audit is ongoing and starts at the beginning of the month following the completion of the Site Audit.

Accredited Certificate Awarded

Upon completion of the Site Audit and starting the Data Audit, the project will now be RESET Accredited.


The Data Audit process is as follows:

  1. Connect the project’s RESET Accredited Data Provider to the RESET Cloud and confirm that the data is being transferred to the RESET Cloud
  2. Go to the project in the RESET Cloud (https://cloud.reset.build/) and select the month to start the Data Audit. The Data Audit will always start at the beginning of a month.
  3. Receive reports every month on the performance and benchmarking analysis of the project.

5. Maintaining Accreditation

RESET Energy Projects are required to continue an ongoing Data Audit. The ongoing Data Audit ensures that data is continuously monitored according to the RESET Energy Standard.

Requirements for Maintaining Accreditation

  • Continuous Monitoring via Data Audit

    Continuous monitoring via the Data Audit must be maintained indefinitely as long as the project wants to remain Accredited. Projects are assessed and benchmarked on a monthly basis based on the energy data submitted to the RESET Cloud.

  • Annual Data Audit Fees

    Accreditation status requires an active Data Audit. The Data Audit requires an annual recurring Data Audit fee. Note that the Data Audit fee encompasses all the Data Audits needed for a project, so it only needs to be paid once when applying multiple RESET Standards to a project.

  • Communication and Education

    Averaged data must be made available to project occupants in some form (i.e. publicly available screens, desktop, or mobile app). Non-occupants need not have access to the data.

Conditions for Certification Revocation

  • Data Missing

    If the project is missing too much data, it is possible for the project's Accredited status to be revoked.

  • Payment Expiration

    If a project fails to pay the annual recurring Data Audit fee, certification will expire.
