MEASUREMENT & VERIFICATION
Deploying an interactive utility Measurement and Verification (M&V) technology solution provides an organization with the ability to track, capture, assess, manage, alert and predict the energy consumption of their equipment and buildings. According to “The Carbon Trust”, implementing an energy M&V solution can reduce your energy consumption by at least 5% by identifying and verifying efficiency improvements. These technologies are key to a building’s life-cycle-management and continuous re-commissioning and can provide a return on investment in less than 18 months.
With the ability to manage the data captured, M&V technologies can provide early warning alerts for unexpected excessive consumption caused by equipment malfunctions, maintenance errors and other equipment abnormalities. In addition to savings realized through a reduction in consumption, additional benefits are realized with improved preventative maintenance measures that ensure the preservation of equipment and other building assets. This also adds to your bottom line by reducing/avoiding equipment maintenance and replacement cost and ultimately increasing your organization’s asset value. For building owners/operators and businesses there are other intangible outcomes that also add to your building’s bottom line. Smarter buildings improve building dynamics resulting in better indoor comfort and overall occupant well-being.
