Measurement and Verification (M&V) is generally defined as the process of planning, measuring, collecting and analyzing data in order to verify energy savings within an individual facility as a result of the implementation of one or several energy conservation measures. This is done through a variety of activities, including the use of meters, data gathering and monitoring, energy data estimation and measurement, and validation of reports. Often, individuals specializing in M&V can help a company cost-effectively implement cost-saving activities through clear communication with project partners for a variety of buildings – including existing buildings, new buildings and industrial facilities.
The 3-day CMVP® program helps educate and qualify individuals to learn and apply the fundamental concepts of all modern M&V standards, guidelines, and protocols. The CMVP® Certification provides proof that the individual has gained an understanding of the critical issues surrounding implementation of M&V theory. The program raises the professional standards, both technical and ethical, of those engaged in energy efficiency and energy performance measurement and verification.
The benefit of the CMVP training program and designation is that it enables people to confidently apply the concepts of performance and savings verification in a wide range of contexts, including energy savings performance contracts and utility/government incentive programs. Additionally, It brings all candidates to a base level of understanding of M&V essentials and improves their ability to communicate core concepts with project partners, thereby eliminating potentially disruptive misunderstandings.
As a bonus, this course also includes tips and tricks on how to use the RETScreen Expert Clean Energy Management software to apply course lessons learned as well as a free 90-day subscription to the Professional version of RETScreen Expert.

The CMVP course imparts fundamental knowledge across several core principles and practices specific to measuring, verifying, and reporting energy performance. This is ensured by the presentation of the following nine sections:
*Note: these same nine sections form the basis of the CMVP Exam
Ms. Maelys Fillon is a Senior Consultant for the Econoler National group. She holds a Master’s Degree in Energy and Environment Engineering from the National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon, in France. She is also a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP). Moreover, she is a trainer for those two training courses at the Canadian Institute for Energy Training (CIET).
Thanks to her experience as a senior program manager at CLEAResult, Maelys has participated in many evaluations in recent years and has developed excellent understanding of programs on the Canadian market as well as the implementation barriers encountered by program managers. In 2019, she obtained a certificate of excellence in program management by deepening her knowledge about program design and evaluation.
As an energy efficiency engineer, Maelys has created and conducted more than 100 measurement and verification (M&V) plans and reports and has developed expertise in complex and innovative industrial projects that required in-depth technical skills. Her knowledge about M&V complements here experience as an energy auditor during which time she conducted more than 100 ASHRAE Level II audits in multi-residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
