Drawn from the Energy Management Association’s new O&M personnel training seminar created for utility incentive programs, this course demonstrates how to develop a plan to defeat drift and ensure continuous savings in energy projects. Topics covered include producing an M&V plan, training O&M staff, ongoing Cx, implementing CMMS/FDD programs, and developing serviceable documentation. This session will show energy managers how to create existing and ongoing value for building owners.

Learning objectives:

  1. Recognize the industry accepted standards and guidelines for M&V, including the International Performance Measurements and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and ASHRAE Guideline 14-2014.
  2. Understand the multi-step process for M&V, including the various approaches (options) establishing implemented measures’ baseline performance and activities to verify projected improvement(s).
  3. See how advancement and expansion in power monitoring, sub-metering, and data analytics has advanced the availability and accuracy of M&V procedures
  4. Understand the enduring value created by training O&M staff, ongoing Cx, implementing CMMS/FDD programs, and developing serviceable documentation.

CxEnergy is presented by the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG), the Energy Management Association (EMA), and the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC). Together, these Authorities in Building Performance represent over 600 member companies and 2,500 certified professionals in the testing, adjusting, and balancing, commissioning, and energy management industries.
