Measurement and Verification

Measurement and verification is an important aspect in performance contracting of energy conservation. While this would be applicable to other productivity enhancements also, SECO’s M&V is oriented toward energy conservation management. It must be made clear that the measurement and verification would never be a part of “Energy Audit Reports”, as many believe. SECO understands the importance of and provides, Creation of baseline, Listing of various parameters , both external and internal Methodology of arriving at the correction to base line, based on the above methodology, for any variation in the parameters. Actual field measurements before and after the implementation. Clear documentation of measurement methodology to eliminate the inaccuracies of the instruments. Training of both the industry and the performance contractor, for measurement , if and when required. This transparent and documented M&V , would be as per the internationally accepted M&V protocol, to ensure that the WIN-WIN possibilities of performance contracting in energy remains as Win-Win, and acts as catalyst for more industries to to go in for performance contracting. With their rich experience in the towns of Tamilnadu for energy conservation, SECOs adoption of the M&V for Indian conditions- would be unbeatable.
