Overview

Measurement and verification (M&V) is the process of using measurements to determine the actual energy savings generated by energy management projects at individual sites. Common M&V activities include metering,​ data collection and processing, transparent savings calculations, monitoring, quality assurance, and​ third-party report verifications.

For those who want to go beyond elementary M&V concepts, the two-day Advanced Measurement and Verification training program provides hands-on exercises and concepts that serve to build on theoretical knowledge acquired through the Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP) course and designation.

On day 1, we recap the main features of M&V and focus on the use of various statistical tools for developing M&V plans, such as: sampling, linear regressions (including multivariable regressions), and uncertainty calculations. On day 2, we explore practical examples of International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) options for the following cases: lighting, motors and variable speed drives, compressed air, heat recovery systems, and commercial buildings. Participants also perform calculations for these cases. Finally, day 2 concludes with the development of an M&V plan.

If you are looking to increase your knowledge of the M&V process and the preparation or interpretation of plans, this program covers the statistical tools, examples, and case studies that are sure to help you develop your expertise.

CIET to Continue Virtual Real-Time Classroom Training in the First Half of 2022 ... with a Twist! 

Last Updated: November 8, 2021 

 

CIET to Continue Virtual Real-Time Classroom Training in the First Half of 2022 … with a Twist! 

 

With well over 200 virtual real-time courses delivered since March 2020 and based on feedback received from more than 2,500 participants, CIET is happy to announce that all public training sessions offered between January and June 2022 will be delivered through our virtual real-time classrooms, with one exception. We’re very excited about our very first in-person course since March 13, 2020: a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) session to be held in downtown Toronto from April 4 to 8, 2022. 

 

Keeping our courses virtual will allow everyone to continue to access CIET training in a safe manner that protects both our participants and trainers regardless of what happens with the pandemic or public health measures. This allows you peace of mind to register for a virtual training course today, knowing that the training will be delivered with the same quality that you would expect from an in-person CIET course. Also, keeping virtual real-time training sessions will ensure that our full course calendar is available to all participants across Canada and abroad regardless of geographical location. 

 

That being said, we really hope to be able to deliver (1) a much broader in-person offering in the fall of 2022 (2) while still offering significant pan-Canadian virtual training.  

 

Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers, and partners, as well as public health recommendations. 

 

We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you in our virtual classrooms! 

 

 Best regards, 

The CIET Team
