Concepts and Options for determining Energy Savings in New construction (M&V Protocol)
George E. Thomas, PE
This course focuses
on concepts and practices for determining energy savings in new construction
by providing a concise description of the best practice techniques for verifying
the energy performance of the new construction projects. The objective is to
provide clear guidance to professionals seeking to verify energy and demand
savings at either component or whole building level in new construction and
to professionals seeking the M&V credit specified in the LEED™ rating system.
This course includes
a multiple choice quiz at the end, which
is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.

This document has
been composed in a manner that minimizes the need for referral to other IPMVP
Volumes. This was done in recognition that users may be new to the field of
energy and M&V and for this document to be easy to use. While this document
is broadly consistent with other IPMVP Volumes and uses the same format and
key terms the concepts and definitions in relate to new construction. Terms
are identified either in the main text or through the use of footnotes. This
course material should not be applied to retrofit savings determination.
This course is based entirely on the Publication Titled Concepts and options for determining Energy Savings in New Construction, April 2003 International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol prepared by IPMVP New Construction Subcommittee. You will be quizzed on the document in its entirety.

At the completion
of this course the engineering/energy professional will know how to determination
energy savings for a new facility, develop a M&V plan for new construction,
and determine the energy performance of a new building.
