Measuring energy savings has become an expected skill for a wide range of building professionals, from energy consultants to stationary engineers. This full-day training explores the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP), which is the gold standard for M&V procedures in the energy efficiency industry.
The course provides an overview of M&V, define key terms, and review its key concepts. It presents and discusses M&V Options A, B, C, and D as defined in IPMVP, and reviews example savings calculations for each option.
The training also includes in-class exercises where the class participants apply the different M&V options by calculating energy savings for a variety of project scenarios. The instructor, David Jump, is a long-standing member of the IPMVP Committee and a major contributor to this protocol.
