Measurement & Verification
A Measurement & Verification (M&V) process ensures all systems are performing as specified and identifies any anomalies in equipment, operations procedures or user habits in the year after construction completion. By undertaking this at regular periods throughout a building’s lifecycle you can ensure that optimal operation is continuously achieved as the building’s profile changes. This can help reduce energy costs, assist with refurbishment and, over time, document and improve the efficiencies of energy conservation measures.
Recording actual performance over the course of occupancy, and comparing that data with the estimated performance seen in design makes M&V an extremely valuable process. It can be applied to a variety of metrics including water use and indoor environmental quality. Our services adhere to IPMVP (International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol) and cover the 3 main routes:
- Calibrated Simulation (for whole building systems)
- Energy Conservation Measure isolation (for smaller buildings)
- EnergyStar Portfolio Manager
