06/20/2023 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT


Event Details

Awards 0.2 CEUs / 2 PDHs (Click for more info)
AESP is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). AESP complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, AESP is authorized to issue the IACET CEU. AESP instructors disclose in advance that they have no interest in any product, service, or material discussed during the course. This information is stated orally and in the training course handbook.

Course Description:

This course is designed to engage with advanced measurement and verification (M&V) concepts, processes, and methodologies for the measurement of energy efficiency savings. 

In this course, you will learn about the latest AM&V methodologies, tools, and techniques for accurately measuring and verifying energy savings. The course will arm you with the most up to date knowledge on important concepts spanning the entire M&V process, including planning and design, data analysis, savings reporting, and evaluability. You will also learn how to identify and respond to the biggest issues facing AM&V projects, such as M&V planning, savings uncertainty, weather variability, and compliance.

After taking this course, you will be able to:

  • Recall the key principles of creating effective energy models for different evaluation goals.
  • Explain the model inputs for residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
  • Recall modern model diagnostic tools and techniques to identify model errors and improve model accuracy.
  • Analyze and evaluate the quality and appropriateness of energy models created by others.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of energy models in achieving project goals and objectives.
  • Design and develop effective energy models that are cost-effective, evaluable, and justifiable.

    *Attendees must earn an 70% or higher on the final course test in order to earn 0.2 CEUs.

    Anna Kelly

    Head of Measurement and Verification, Power TakeOff

    Anna Kelly received her MPP in Energy Policy from Oregon State University. Her specialty is measurement and verification (M&V) and she received her training from Energy Trust of Oregon’s evaluation team. She is a certified measurement and verification professional and serves on the IPMVP technical committee. She has evaluated over 150 energy efficiency programs, including more than half of the SEM programs in the US and Canada. She designed and launched the statewide Industrial Strategic Energy Management program administered by the Colorado Energy Office. She is currently the Head of Measurement and Verification at Power Takeoff, where she oversees, directs and coordinates over 2,000 energy efficiency AM&V models a year while prioritizing scholarly activity around advancing high quality, reliable, and cost-effective strategies to arrest climate change. Her active areas of research include measure persistence, the tradeoffs of cost benefit analysis and climate change mitigation, weather normalization, and advanced M&V. She serves the industry through research. Her contributions include 16 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, guidelines, and presentations to increase understanding of energy programs including designing measurement criteria, adapting to COVID-19 non-routine events, and using advanced M&V to measure energy program achievements and grow
