One of the commonly cited barriers to the uptake of energy efficiency projects is the lack of trust of the level of savings being claimed.
To ‘cost effectively’ reassure our customers, JRP Solutions can provide proof of energy consumption savings envisaged by individual energy reduction projects by using the protocol for performance measurement and verification (M&V) as outlined in the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP) Guidelines.
IPMVP was first established by the US D.O.E. and has become the internationally recognized protocol for performance measurement and verification (M&V) of energy saving projects. The IPMVP guidelines, built with the help of organizations from 16 countries and hundreds of individual experts from 25 nations, provides a consistent, reliable approach to M&V around the world.
A number of JRP’s consultants are qualified as ‘Certified Measurement & Verification Professional’s which is the professional qualification of IPMVP.
