MEASUREMENT & VERIFICATION

Measurement & Verification






LEED® Certification



According to Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO), “M&V is the process of using measurement to reliably determine actual savings created within an individual facility by an energy management, energy conservation or energy efficiency project or program. As savings cannot be directly measured, the savings can be determined by comparing measured use before and after implementation of a project, making appropriate adjustments for changes in conditions.”

Under the LEED® Rating System, a new building can earn up to 3 credits by completing Measurement and Verification procedures, which include a M&V plan, an M&V period of at least one year post-construction occupancy, and a process for corrective action if the results of the M&V plan indicate that energy savings are not being achieved.
