The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announced that it will be holding a webinar series to support states considering implementing new or expanding existing evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V) methods for energy efficiency programs. EM&V documents energy and demand savings and can be used to evaluate processes to improve implementation of efficiency programs. Under the Clean Power Plan, if a state seeks to utilize zero- or low-carbon emitting resources to meet its emission goals, then its state implementation plan must include requirements for EM&V procedures.
LBNL’s webinar series is targeted towards staff from public utility commissions, state energy offices, state environment departments, and non-profit organizations and will “provide an overview of the who, what, when, where, why and how of EM&V.” The first program in the series, Planning and Budgeting for the Evaluation (EM&V) of Energy Efficiency Programs, will be held on Monday, May 23, 2016, from 2:00-3:15 PM EST.
The webinar programs will be recorded and posted along with the presentations on LBNL’s EM&V Webinar Series website.
