M&V 2.0 Workshop: Evolving The Paradigms For M&V


Courtyard Burlington Harbor Hotel
25 Cherry Street
Burlington, VT 05401
United States

Event Date

M&V2.0 is generally understood as the ability to collect and analyze large volumes of interval meter data by way of many new technologies and software. Measuring and verifying (M&V) energy consumption and energy savings with these tools creates opportunities to support the integrated grid of the future and invites new implementation and evaluation paradigms.

Please note that the day prior (November 6) NEEP is hosting the Northeast Strategic Energy Management Collaborative Workshop at the same location, followed by a reception - co-hosted with VEIC. Attendees of both workshops are welcome to attend this reception. You may purchase tickets to both days below.
Please note that this workshop is being held the day after Election Day. If you are traveling to this workshop (or the one on November 6), be sure to make alternative arrangements for voting and consult your state's absentee ballot procedures.

As Vermont pushes towards the future, this workshop will cover pilots, projects and a range of perspectives on how M&V 2.0 can be put into action.  This workshop will feature the evaluator perspective, the program perspective, the regulatory and consumer advocate perspective, the utility perspective, as well as feature a snapshop into innovative programs and pilots.

Pilots are essential for testing performance and applicability of Advanced M&V. Hear about results to date from the C&I pilot that has been ongoing in CT and about the status of planning for the residential pilot. Invite/encourage state partners and other stakeholders to incorporate some pilot-like inquiries into their EM&V activities if possible to increase knowledge base from the region.

What are the topics and key issues to include in a framework that would serve as guidance in for M&V2.0 tools and resources in the context of Advanced Efficiency?  One of the outcomes of pilot research is to develop guidance on best practices in applying Advanced M&V tools. This presentation and discussion session will pick up from and extend the discussions from our 2017 workshop. What is best to serve the region and the industry?
