    Presentation Title:

    Managing your ‘Negawatt’ Investment – Why performance measurement & verification (M&V) is crucial to managing energy efficiency projects

    Presentation Synopsis:

    When undertaking energy efficiency projects often organisations spare little thought for how the savings will be measured and in many cases this can end up being an afterthought of the project. The premise of an energy efficiency investment is to ‘buy’ energy savings but without visibility of the project performance how do you know if you’re getting value for money? In this presentation, we will look at the role of Measurement and Verification (M&V) in understanding ‘business as usual’ energy variations and establishing appropriate baselines to disaggregate savings from unrelated changes to energy usage, perhaps due to a change in temperature or production. Best practice M&V plays a crucial role in achieving competent contractor performance management, allowing underperformance to be identified and rectified and successful projects to be given the recognition they deserve.
