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

Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification: The Value of Energy Efficiency

Measuring and Verifying Energy Efficiency ACHR News, July 13, 2015. Image credit: DomenicBlair Accurately measuring and verifying energy efficiency not only ensures a job was done correctly, but it also shows customers they’re getting exactly what they paid for. According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), providing evidence of real and reliable savings

How Do You Measure the Impacts of Energy Efficiency Policies?

Gita Subramony for Zondits, February 17, 2015 Energy efficiency policies have long been evaluated in order to examine if claimed savings are in fact achieved and if program processes work successfully to reach these goals. One tricky part of this analysis is figuring out if energy savings are in fact attributable to a program’s intervention
