The process of measurement and verification (M&V) involves planning, measuring, and analyzing data to verify energy savings achieved through the implementation of energy conservation measures. This three-day CMVP course enables participants to thoroughly understand modern M&V standards, guidelines, and protocols.

The CMVP program and certification ensure that professionals understand essential M&V concepts by improving their ability to communicate effectively with partners, thereby leading to smoother project implementation. Completing this training and earning the CMVP certification elevates technical expertise and ethical standards in energy efficiency and performance measurement. Professionals gain the skills to effectively implement M&V principles in diverse building types, including existing buildings, new constructions, and industrial facilities, and enable companies to implement cost saving activities.

This program covers the nine bodies of knowledge essential to pass the CMVP exam. Topics include fundamental performance verification approaches, M&V planning, savings reporting, metering and considerations thereof, and modelling concepts. You will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to confidently measure, verify, and report energy performance and savings in diverse contexts, including energy savings performance contracts and utility/government incentive programs. As a bonus, you will receive tips and tricks on how to use the RETScreen® Expert Clean Energy Management software along with a complimentary 90-day subscription to the professional version of RETScreen® Expert.
