International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP): Accomplishments and Future Directions?

February 12, 2001 - 12:00pm
Bldg 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Proven energy savings are playing a significant role in financing energy efficiency projects and may emerge as the basis for some emissions trades in the future. There is also an increasing awareness that energy efficiency projects should be implemented in a manner that, at a minimum, doesn't degrade the indoor environmental conditions and, if possible, improve them. Measurement and verification of energy savings, five years after the publication of the first industry consensus document, still faces significant barriers with cost-effectiveness of various M&V approaches being the most important one. Apart from providing an overview of the two volumes (Volume I: Concepts and Options for Determining Energy Savings and Volume II: Concepts and Best Practices for Improved Indoor Environmental Quality) and what it has accomplished in the last five years, the seminar will focus on the future of M&V protocols by discussing the recent trends in terms of deployment and adoption both nationally and internationally and its place in the current energy policy scenario.
