Overview

The International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP®) is the energy savings verification protocol most commonly used in the world. Many individuals, such as institution owners and leaders, energy managers and ESCO services suppliers, need to develop general understanding of the methods used to conduct measurement and verification (M&V), although they do not have to possess in-depth expertise as needed by CMVP® professionals.

 

This one-day training, offered in collaboration with the Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO®), presents the principal M&V and IPMVP concepts by underlining the central purpose served by M&V, summarizing the possible usages of M&V methods and stressing the need to conduct M&V calculations based on each project’s specific characteristics. This training is intended for managers and staff responsible for finance and regulations, as well as technicians who need to have basic understanding of the roles played by M&V in supporting investments in energy efficiency.

 

Objectives

  • Understand the basic concepts related to how to carry out M&V activities as well as measure and verify the performance of energy efficiency projects
  • Learn about the contents of an M&V plan
  • Develop understanding about the practical side of implementing an M&V plan
  • Identify the accuracy limits of M&V activities
