EM&V Webinar Series Intro

Energy efficiency EM&V is the collection of approaches for determining and documenting energy and non-energy benefits resulting from end-use energy efficiency activities and programs. Effective EM&V can confirm energy savings, verify cost-effectiveness, and guide future energy efficiency investment decisions.

This webinar series was designed to support states considering and implementing evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) of energy efficiency programs. The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE)  Office of Electricity’s Electricity Policy Technical Assistance Program funded Berkeley Lab to facilitate eleven webinars, which can be accessed via the tabs below. Berkeley Lab coordinated this series with input from and collaboration with DOE, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, and National Association of State Energy Officials.

These webinar series recordings are intended primarily for staff from public utility commissions, state energy offices, state environment departments, and non-profit organizations and offers an opportunity to engage with others in similar roles. The webinars can be of particular value for state officials starting or expanding their EM&V methods for a wide range of efficiency activities including utility customer-funded programs, building energy codes, appliance and equipment standards, energy savings performance contracting, and efficiency programs that support pollution reduction goals or regulations.

Evaluation consultants, utilities, consumer organizations and other stakeholders may also find the webinar presentations helpful.
