High Performing m&v equals high performing goals
The health and safety of our attendees and colleagues is our highest priority. As of now, NEEP is currently reevaluating and considering alternative format options for 2020 events.
There are myriad policies and programs that focus on buildings are helping meet our urgent need to minimize their carbon footprint. Time is of the essence and funds are limited, so how can we use measurement and evaluation to help manage progress?
This half-day workshop is designed to engage a diverse audience that includes experts from government, industry, communities, utilities, and the evaluation field. The workshop will showcase recent successful examples to offer learning, to stimulate discussion, and to push thinking on more efficient, effective ways to optimize building performance, effectively build and manage programs, and inform the evolution of policy.
Panel 1: EM&V in the Digital Age: Transparent, Rapid Building Energy Analytics
This panel will focus on how digital resources can assist in how energy efficiency programs perform. Speakers will share findings and first-hand experience from a three-year research project to assess trends in advanced M&V and a pilot study of advanced M&V applications for utility residential and commercial EE program evaluation. Group discussion will explore the value proposition of digital resources for EE programs in the future.
Panel 2: EM&V for Building Decarbonization
What does EM&V for building decarbonization look like? Speakers from varying perspectives - including energy and environmental policy, building energy programs, and program evaluation - will engage the audience to discuss what is included in a new evaluation framework to get us to better, faster decarbonization. Questions to consider are:
- What role should evaluation play in new program and policy domains (beyond traditional EE and DER evaluation)?
- How can new metrics be designed and integrated into building decarbonization strategies?
- What key factors will influence evaluation approaches (e.g. the magnitude and pace of change in policies, cross-cutting strategies, institutional/regulatory directions, costs)?
