Program 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.

Trainers

Geneviève Gauthier
Eng., M.Sc., CEA, CEM, CMVP

Ms. Gauthier is an energy transition expert who has advised the public sector and private organizations in the commercial, institutional and industrial sectors for almost 20 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal and a master’s degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.

Ms. Gauthier is the National Director of Consulting Services at Econoler, a consulting firm with almost 40 years of experience in the design, implementation, evaluation and financing of energy efficiency programs and projects. She also acts as a trainer for the Canadian Institute of Energy Training (CIET).

Ms. Gauthier is currently on the board of director of Ecotech Quebec: the clean technology cluster, the Quebec Council of Energy Efficiency Entreprises (CQ3E): an organization dedicated to the recognition of energy efficiency as a full-fledged energy sector, and on the governance of the Building Energy Challenge, a BOMA Quebec initiative that she co-instigated. Finally, Ms. Gauthier is co-author of Canadian Energy Efficiency Outlook: A National Effort for Tackling Climate Change, a book published in 2018.
