The pace never slows at the Regional Evaluation Measurement &Verification Forum. In addition to conducting several ongoing projects, the Forum is launching two new projects – the HVAC Variable Speed Drive (VSD) Loadshape project and the Building Energy Codes project – and further developing it Regional Energy Efficiency Database (REED).

- 2011 Annual Public Meeting – October 12 in Albany, NY
- Regional Energy Efficiency Database Project Launched
- National EM&V Update.
NEEP’s Evaluation, Measurement & Verification (EM&V) Forum has recently completed two large research and evaluation projects. The results of these studies advance energy efficiency by supporting program administrator calculations of savings from efficient lighting and unitary HVAC equipment and also serving as documentation for submissions to the region’s forward capacity markets. These were large, expensive studies that would have been impossible for many Forum sponsors on their own; they leveraged funds from the 10 states that participate in the Forum. More information about the studies follows:
It’s not apples and oranges so why are Northeast states treating energy efficiency savings so differently?
Earlier this year, NEEP’s Evaluation, Measurement & Verification Forum agreed to adopt a common set of statewide guidelines for reporting energy efficiency savings and associated costs, emissions and job impacts.
Leaders across the region agree to common reporting guidelines for efficiency savings.
Energy utility commissioners and energy efficiency leaders in the Northeast and Mid- Atlantic regions have agreed to implement a common set of statewide guidelines for reporting energy efficiency savings and associated costs, emissions and job impacts. This agreement by the Regional Evaluation, Measurement, & Verification Forum’s (EM&V Forum) Steering Committee marks a significant milestone in laying the groundwork for building greater transparency and credibility of energy efficiency as a reliable, plentiful energy resource in the region and further drives the energy efficiency agenda nationally.
