What’s in Your EM&V Genome?
Make plans to be in Baltimore the day before APM for a one day pre-meeting workshop on January 13. The workshop will provide training and information on the recently developed Standardized EM&V Methods Reporting Forms, adopted by the Forum Steering Committee this past summer.
Workshop attendees will review the two standard forms (study and program level) and the process of completing the forms using real examples of studies and programs. They will also discuss: inputting data; interpreting the data in completed forms; and potential future uses of the forms as inputs to an EM&V database or for EPA 111(d) compliance reporting requirements. The workshop will also provide examples of how the forms can be used to support the U.S. DOE Uniform Methods Project EE Savings Protocols.
