Performance Measurement and Verification Analyst (PMVATM)
The Performance Measurement and Verification Analyst (PMVA) professional certification establishes the primary standard for individuals applying performance, measurement, and verification concepts to energy efficiency projects. PMVAs typically work in an analyst role for ESCOs, public administration, utilities, and financial institutions and are involved in designing and implementing energy efficiency programs and financing energy efficiency projects. They have demonstrated M&V capabilities, including a good understanding of applying the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP®) to determine savings. PMVAs could be building technologists, HVAC specialists, engineers, architects, economists, financial analysts, etc.
The Efficiency Valuation organization has launched the PMVA Certification in relation to its 2.5 days (L3) M&V Fundamentals and IPMVP® training course. The PMVA program is based on EVO’s International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP®). EVO’s PMVA Certification is earned by demonstrated field M&V work achieved through a mix of M&V relevant education, professional expertise, and experiences.
The EVO’s M&V Fundamentals and IPMVP Training course and the EVO’s PMVA certification associated with it are provided exclusively by Alliance for an Energy-Efficient Economy (AEEE) in India and are now widely recognised as the best practice approach to measurement and verification (M&V) for energy-saving projects.
The IPMVP is extensively used and referenced globally and is supported here in India.
Workshop on Enhancing Energy Efficiency in Operations of HVAC Systems
For commercial buildings, an HVAC system consumes more than 50% of the overall energy consumption. The performance drifts in the HVAC system due to varying loads lead to several inefficiencies. Many of the issues of HVAC system performance are common across applications. This workshop focuses on explaining the fundamentals of operations of central chilled water plants. The workshop covers the fundamentals of HVAC systems in a very lucid manner and provides tips on equipment and system-level efficiency.
