Who will benefit from this training?

Designed for Commercial and Industrial HVAC, Lighting and Energy Management Professionals, this training and certification will help provide quality outcomes in measuring and verifying energy use and savings.

The verification of energy savings is an important aspect of energy management initiatives, and has a direct impact on project financing, greenhouse gas emission credit trading, and energy performance contracting. The most widely accepted protocol for savings verification is the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

Participants in this course will learn how to design an M&V strategy for projects that complies with the IPMVP, and to manage the savings verification process for both internal and external reporting.
