What is M&V?

Measurement and Verification (M&V) is the measuring and verification of the actual energy savings that occur during a specified period.  Kelcroft's engagement as your independent M&V consultant ensures: 

  • Right M&V Protocol selected
  • Confirms actual not estimated energy savings

Good Starting Point

It is often overlooked, for a successful project the work as an independent M&V consultant does not start after the installation phase, thats already too late. Facility managers need to have the independent M&V in place, and agreed with the Independent M&V auditor at the planning stage, working with the team.

Measurement & Verification Protocols

To ensure the method for assessing the actual energy savings are based on a common language and framework, M&V protocols need to be developed included in the project.

In business financial accounts are created and then audited based a set of agreed accounting standards. Its the same for energy, where finances are based on a common accounting standard, energy savings are based on the M&V protocol. This is necessary to avoid unnecessary debate, and confusion after installation is already complete. And it also means that the M&V auditor can determine if the required sensors, and metering equipment to achieve the require result is provided within the installation.

Consider an energy project to upgrade the air conditioning system, every month the weather, and therefore the energy consumption will vary in accordance with the season. The M&V protocol sets out the agreed formula to calculate, the energy savings beforehand. Since the method is agreed in advance, the contractor installing the equipment knows what savings need to be achieved and how they will be assessed.
