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 get advanced M&V concepts, the two-day Advanced Measurement and Verification training program provides hands-on exercises and concepts that serve to complement and reinforce theoretical knowledge acquired through common M&V certification courses 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.
