Some (Not So) Hidden Secrets for Successful M&V of Energy Efficiency Projects Webinar
Thursday, October 1, 2020, noon to 1 p.m., MT
Guest speaker: Eric Mazzi, Mazzi Consulting (mazziconsulting.com)
Eric discussed several M&V issues which, in his view, are often critical to the successful M&V for energy efficiency projects. “For those who only indirectly work with M&V, I will first briefly overview what M&V is and summarize common methods. Then I will discuss several concepts and issues that are often critical to successful M&V. For each issue, I will illustrate using examples and case studies from industrial or institutional M&V projects. My goal is to help professionals only tangentially involved in M&V to gain a better understanding of what M&V is, and improve your ability to contribute to successful M&V. For M&V practitioners, I aim to help improve your effectiveness by reinforcing key concepts and sometimes overlooked issues, and ideally help your M&V work contribute to more effective demand-side energy management.”
How Smart Buildings Improve Ventilation, Air Quality and Reduce Energy Use Webinar
Tuesday, September 15, 2020, noon to 1 p.m., MT
Guest speaker: Andreas Winardi, Sr. Energy Engineer with Siemens
“Energy efficiency have been taking the back seat lately with the call for increased ventilation when reopening buildings. Ventilation is key to maintain good Indoor Air Quality, but should we sacrifice Energy Efficiency to achieve this? Is there a better way to mitigate the risk, while saving energy and safely reopening buildings to be occupied after a long shutdown? Is it time to be Smart and smartly deploy a new way to optimize building performance?”
