ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Presented by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), in conjunction with the Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO), this comprehensive training course is designed to provide a useful preparatory vehicle for those seeking to achieve the status of Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP), awarded by AEE to pre-qualified M&V professionals who complete this seminar and successfully pass the CMVP examination administered by AEE at the close of instruction.
Proven energy savings are now playing a significant role in financing energy management programs, whether through energy performance contracts or through emission trades under schemes such as the clean development mechanism of the UNFCCC. While interest in savings data is growing, the state of the art in determining savings has also been rapidly evolving. This seminar will examine current best practices for determining and documenting savings, specifically reviewing the current edition of the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP). Attendees will learn the process of designing a proper M&V program for their projects, including cost/accuracy tradeoffs, baseline adjustments, interactive effects, types of savings, maintaining transparency, and analysis methods. Examples of specific techniques will be presented, along with common pitfalls which can result in unreliable savings reports. These techniques are central to management under the new ISO 50001 standard for Energy Management Systems. Class time will include problem solving and debate. Bring a calculator and any M&V challenges you may currently face for general discussion.
Through participating in a "fundamentals" course, persons experienced in M&V will also appreciate the assembly of all of the issues, the debates, and engagement at their own level with expert instructors.
The CMVP exam will be administered at the close of instruction on day three of each seminar to those who have qualified in advance to sit for the exam by submitting a completed CMVP application and fee. Advance reading of IPMVP Volume I (available at www.evo-world.org) would be useful reading before the exam, though not required.
ABOUT CMVP CERTIFICATION
Please Note: In order to qualify to sit for the CMVP exam, you must submit your completed CMVP application, along with a $400 application fee. This fee must be paid at the time the CMVP application is submitted. The certification application/exam fee is not included in the cost of this required preparatory training seminar. EVO subscribers: If you are attending a seminar in the U.S. please contact EVO for your VIP pricing code. If you are attending outside of the U.S. contact the local training provider for any possible discounts.
For information on obtaining your CMVP application form, or for further information on the CMVP program, visit www.aeecenter.org/cmvp.
AEE, in cooperation with the Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO), established the Certified Measurement and Verification Professional program with the dual purpose of recognizing the most qualified professionals in this growing area of the energy industry, and raising the overall professional standards within the measurement and verification field. The IPMVP, first established by the U.S. D.O.E., has become the internationally recognized protocol for performance measurement and verification (M&V) in the energy efficiency field. More information about EVO can be found at www.evo-world.org.
