Statistical Tools for M&V (Day 1)
This one-day module recaps the main features of M&V and focuses on the use of various statistical tools for developing M&V plans, such as: sampling, linear regression (including multi-variable regression), and uncertainty calculations. Exercises to be carried out reinforce the learning process.
Practical Examples and Case Studies (Day 2)
Practical examples are reviewed for IPMVP Options A, B and C for the following cases: lighting, motors and variable speed drives, compressed air, heat recovery systems and commercial buildings. Attendees also perform calculations for these cases. The day concludes with the development of an M&V plan for an industrial process.
