The Common Carbon Metric 2.0 (CCM2.0) 

The Common Carbon Metric 2.0 (CCM2.0) is a tool for measuring building energy related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy savings potential of the stock of new and existing buildings in an investment portfolio, municipality, region or country.
CCM2.0 generates an energy demand and GHG emissions base-line and enables the development of energy saving and GHG mitigation scenarios that can be used to support applications for climate finance for mitigation actions in the buildings sector under UNFCCC mechanisms such as the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF.)

The tool is based on a calculation methodology that conforms to ‘measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV)’ data standards. It supports:

Measurement of energy use and related GHG emissions from buildings & serves as the basis for assessing the 
potential for certain mitigation actions 

Reporting on the country’s/city’s GHG emissions and appropriate mitigation actions 


Verification of the compliance with mitigation commitments by enabling updating of energy use and emissions data over time.

For further information check the CCM2.0 website

In the context of climate change mitigation, the abatement potential is the amount of mitigation that could be reduced over time. [Source: IPCC]

Deep Renovation or Deep Energy Renovation is a term for a building renovation that captures the full economic energy efficiency potential of improvements. This typically includes a focus on the building shell of existing buildings in order to achieve very high-energy performance. The renovated building consumes 75% less primary energy compared to the status of the existing building before the renovation. The energy consumption after renovation for heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting, is less than 60 kWh/m2/yr. (Definition often used in Europe) [Source: GBPN, 2012]

The calculated or measured amount of energy needed to meet the energy demand associated with a typical use of the buildings, which includes inter alia, energy used for heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting (EU). [Source: EPBD recast, 2010/31/EU]

NZEB are buildings that over a year are neutral, meaning that they deliver as much energy to the supply grids as they use from the grids. Seen in these terms they do not need any fossil fuel for heating, cooling, lighting or other energy uses although they sometimes draw energy from the grid. [Source: IEA (Laustsen J.)
