What is Measurement and Verification?
Measurement and Verification (M&V) is the process of planning, collecting, measuring and analysing data to verify and report energy savings within a facility through the implementation of Energy Conservation Measures (ECM).
Savings are determined by comparing measured energy use before and after implementation of an ECM and making suitable routine or non-routine adjustments for changes in conditions. Savings cannot be directly measured, since savings represents the absence of energy use.
Turn data into energy savings
Conservia provides M&V services with its Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) for a wide range of industries including commercial, industrial, health, educational and state and local governments. We believe that M&V is the key to any EPC as it allows us to demonstrate that savings are being achieved and system performance is maintained at optimum levels. A well-defined methodology is required for each ECM to ensure a high level of accuracy to minimise verification risk as well as make the implementation economical.
