05/23/2023 @ 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 provide energy professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to understand advanced measurement and verification (M&V) methodologies for the measurement of energy efficiency savings. Energy efficiency programs aim to reduce energy consumption and costs while maintaining or improving energy performance, and effective M&V is crucial to demonstrate the impact and success of these programs.

In this course, participants will learn about the latest M&V methodologies, tools, and techniques for accurately measuring and verifying energy savings. The course will cover the entire M&V process, from planning and design to data analysis and reporting. Participants will also learn how to identify and mitigate various measurement and verification issues, such as uncertainties in data, equipment performance, and weather variability.

After taking this course, you will be able to:
  • Recall the key principles of creating effective energy models for different project types.
  • Explain the minimum model specifications for residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
  • Apply 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
