One Size Does Not Fit All: M&V, EEMetering, and EM&V

Matt Golden, Open EE January 4, 2017 Billing analysis, Bayesian statistics, randomized control trials, phone polls — with the advent of EEMetering, smart meters, and pay-for-performance, one of the most important questions we have to answer as an industry is how do we measure energy efficiency? Turns out, it depends on the purpose. While the

A Zondits Interview: The Role of Energy Efficiency at Silicon Valley Power

Valerie Eacret, ERS, for Zondits Zondits spoke with Mary Medeiros McEnroe, Silicon Valley Power’s (SVP’s) Public Benefits Program Manager, about what role energy efficiency plays in SVP’s operations. Mary has been in this role for 9 years and had been with the utility for almost 22 years. As Public Benefits Program Manager, she is responsible

Energy Efficiency Should Connect Customers and Innovate Partners

How Utilities Can Become Efficiency Innovators Greentech Media, November 28, 2016 The New York Public Service Commission, seeking innovative solutions in its Reforming the Energy Vision proceeding, instead opted for an outcome-oriented approach to measuring and incentivizing efficiency performance. An outcome-oriented metric would focus on the policy goal of reduced energy use overall, putting a smaller

Persistence in the Evaluation World

Max Ma, ERS, for Zondits In the utility M&V and evaluation world, persistence is generally defined as the change in expected savings relative to the baseline. Persistence is the little brother to the end-of–useful-life (EUL) metric. Frequently, persistence factors are built into the deemed values of EULs in quantifying lifetime savings.  Savings persistence accounts for

The Landscape of EDGE M&V

Gary Epstein and Jeff Perkins, ERS, for Zondits There is wide consensus that the next generation of evaluation and M&V must deliver more value, must produce more immediate results, and must serve the need for accurately demonstrating project impacts with great certainty. Further, to allow for the widest application across multitudes of buildings, any sustainable
