EM&V 2.0: What’s the Future of Measuring Energy Efficiency Savings? (What I did on my Summer Vacation in Washington, DC)

May 29, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

In an effort to significantly expand energy efficiency in the US, the US DOE began several efforts to advance the practice of energy efficiency program evaluation in the US.  The goal is to shift to quicker, less costly, sufficiently accurate savings measurements.  A significant driver for these improved approaches arises from the possible role of savings measurements in regional or national regulatory schemes.  Other drivers include developing evaluation approaches that accelerate self-funded or privately funded energy efficienc. These developments take advantage of maturation of existing approaches, the spread of new technologies, and efforts to expand the types of entities pursuing energy efficiency.


Dr. Miller will tie together these developments in the context of a recent article on EM&V 2.0 in Electric Light and Power News (Feb. 12, 2014) and the EM&V goals of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s State Energy Efficiency Action EM&V Workgroup.  He’ll show how Lab activities (including BEDES, UMP and AutoM&V) fit into these policies.  He’ll go on to discuss some of the EM&V roadmap recommendations in ANSI’s Energy Efficiency Standards Coordinating Collaborative (to be published in June/July 2014).  He’ll close opening the floor to discussion of the nature of energy efficiency measurement necessary to support a 5x or 10x increase in energy efficiency activity.
