Why a Certified Measurement and Verifications Professional

If energy efficiency measures are to make a significant contribution to organisations across the UK, measurement and verification of actual energy savings are needed to demonstrate their short- and long-term impact.

With this in mind, resident Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP), Helder Galrinho, explains why independent specialists, prove vital when it comes to verifying overall savings.

Measurement and Verification (M&V) is a process for assessing energy savings achieved through the implementation of Energy Conservation Measures (ECM). This process involves measuring and verifying pre-and post-implementation energy use and adjusting accordingly for any significant changes in conditions.

An M&V plan is used as a main guideline because it records all baselines and assumptions.

Many organisations use Energy Service Companies (ESCos) or Facilities Management companies to look at their energy efficiency processes, as part of an Energy Performance Contract (EPC). Some of the ECMs involves a large investment which is affordable for ESCos therefore, doing an energy performance contract (EPC) is an almost irresistible proposal.

ESCos normally claim payments based on the energy they have saved but I would always recommend getting an independent CMVP for peace of mind. This empowers the customer to hold their provider to account for performance, ensuring a properly designed M&V process is done from the outset.

In my opinion, when an EPC has been carried out, an independent M&V plan acts as an insurance policy to protect both the final customer and ESCos.
