Optimize facility management
Measurement & Verification (M&V) is a formal, systematic process for quantifying the impact and savings delivered by renewable and energy efficiency projects. M&V is a practice that demonstrates the amount of energy and demand that has been “avoided” as a result of energy conservation measures and renewable energy solutions. The M&V process parallels the construction of an energy conservation or renewable energy project from start to finish.
We take a comprehensive approach to M&V
The Energylink M&V department is equipped with in-house Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals (CMVP) and energy managers. We have the qualifications and expertise in engineering, design, construction, and post-installation verification activities which follow the industry accepted International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocols (IPMVP).
Unlike many other ESCOs, Energylink understands how to incorporate PV modeling, solar performance tracking and troubleshooting into our overall measurement and verification protocols. This allows our team to adapt M&V activities to a variety of project scopes and metering schemes. We also offer additional M&V services such as third party M&V and solar performance tracking.
Our M&V process
Facility energy audits
Gain an understanding of your facility’s historical energy use patterns, and how it currently operates, accessing operating schedules, equipment inventory, utility history, lighting counts, and occupancy
Create a plan that provides transparency between EnergyLink and our customer in which both parties negotiate and agree upon methodologies and savings calculations used to quantify project saving
Create energy models crucial to determining avoided energy use during the projects performance period
Measure the actual usage during the performance period, comparing it to baseline models to determine the avoided energy use
Annual post-installation reporting
Quantify avoided energy usage health of the systems in place
We're results focused
