    Hoping you can get the word out on the new date for the NYSERDA Subsidized Training:  Fundamentals of M&V, June 17-19.


    Fundamentals of M&V


    Presented by PSD and the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) this comprehensive training course is designed to provide the necessary training for those seeking to achieve the status of Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP). More details about the CMVP  designation can be found at www.aeecenter.org.

    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.

    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.

    Who should attend

    • ·     Students who want to take the CMVP exam
    • ·     Professional Engineers ; Registered Architects
    • ·     Certified Energy Managers (CEM)
    • ·     Participants in commercial energy efficiency programs


    2 AIA CEUs, 20  NYS PDHs


    2.5 days; optional CMVP exam on afternoon of 3rd day
