Our M&V services give assurance that your equipment improves energy efficiency as predicted. This is critical when upgrading or investing in new facilities or machinery. It is also an essential part of carbon reduction initiatives such as the Federal Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund and the NSW Energy Savings Scheme.
What our M & V certification means to you
Our Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP), Dr Davide Ross, leads a global best practice team, defined by the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).
This approach compares energy consumption beforehand against the relevant parameters, then again after your upgrade. It enables a verifiable evaluation of changes and energy efficiencies achieved.
M & V: federal and state sustainability initiatives
Emissions Reduction Fund
Our M&V approach verifies energy savings under the Australian Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) using the Industrial Electricity and Fuel Efficiency method.
Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)
Our team, led by our CMVP, is experienced in the Project Impact Assessment with Measurement and Verification (PIAM&V) methodology under the NSW Government’s Energy Savings Scheme (ESS). This enables us to validate a project’s M&V approach prior to submission to IPART.
Put another way, our means of calculating energy savings can help generate Energy Savings Certificates (ESCs) and Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs).
Eligible projects for Energy Savings Certificates
In NSW, using an M&V approach compliant under PIAM&V allows generation of certificates from projects such as:
- HVAC upgrades,
- VSD installations,
- Production line improvements.
Australian Carbon Credit Units for projects outside of NSW
Measurement and Verification compliant with IPMVP, and the appropriate ERF method, should lead to a simpler, more transparent means of generating ACCUs under the ERF. Talk to us about eligibility.
