A multi-level hierarchy template that allows a hierarchy node in each level to have associated meters, as well as child hierarchy nodes. The template has different views to navigate either the full hierarchy or meters associated at each level.
Note: Installing the hierarchy template does NOT give you the configured sample hierarchy displayed below. After installing the template to your PME system, configure the hierarchy according to your hierarchy needs

I've a site that is looking to view its data in a number of different "levels" and this looks like it might fit the bill.
Essentially, they want to have a "Level 0" as being top level, site incomer for example, but could be gas, or water
Level 1 could be a water balance split into different areas with the meters being at Level 2
But Level 0 could also be an energy balance, with Level one being different areas - office, production, compressed air, steam etc. and then level 2 being the actual meters. Or it could go one step further down with level 2 being a subset of the service - so Level 2 Chilled water, being split at Level 3 to different areas and then Level 4 being the meters.
Would this hierarchy work better than the default (I've started with the default as I hadn't seen this one - but not done too much as I'm waiting for client names)
And finally, could the titles be name Level 0 to Level 4 rather than Level 1 to Level 5 easily enough?

Following my commend on the 6th June, I've been investigating this template on my test machine, but also altered the XML to shift the levels down one - so level 1 became level 0, level 2, level 1 etc.
I imported the template and it displays as you would expect.
I've then added some levels as below. All good so far.
But when I come to add the meters, the levels are lost on returning to the original tab.
At level 2 is a meter.
Click to the Level 2 tab and its not there
Click back to the meter tab and its also gone.
Assuming that I can resolve this issue, I presume that I need to add the meter at the level its physically located - ie I don't associate it with the levels above? I base this on the logic that if I do it could double or triple count it?
This does look to be perfect for the clients needs - If I can get it to save properly!
Jiafeng Huang is this something you can help with?

This may have to do with the relation in the xml. When you change the display name, did you also change all the type and reference?

I did a search and replace on the XML - both the display name and the levels were replaced - but I will check later.

Thanks Jiafeng, Found the problem I think.
I had capitalised the level references - so rather than level1_level2 it became Level1_Level2
So the final question is, if I have a meter at level 3, do I associate it with level 2 and level 0? And if I have a meter at level 2 that then feeds the level 3 meter, will it double count the energy?
I can try it with some test data later, but if you know off hand that could save some time!

Watching this thread had honestly just reminded me how hard Hierarchies actually is to define in the first place and get it right, nevermind getting rollups right, physical vs summed children nodes, backing up and restoring existing hierarchies, and the list goes on. This part of PME hasn't been touched for a number of revisions besides a graphic skin change.
Juan Camilo Arias - what's the plan here mate? We don't have anything on the roadmap here.
Also, nothing on the Billing Module which related to tenancy definitions in Hierarchies.

This is definitely in our radar. Now we are seeing a broader adoption of hierarchies and also some projects pushing the limits of its capabilities. For PME 9.0 we have fixed some issues and we are looking at more improvements for the future.

I have now set up a few meters into the Hierarchy and its not working (when I use Dashboards for example) how I was expecting it to!
For example, if I use the Drill down view to select the data, then no data is found, If I use the Level 2 view it works.
