MEASUREMENT AND VERIFICATION
The Measurement and Verification (M&V) process utilized by Bernhard Energy Solutions is structured to provide operations and maintenance personnel with timely feedback on the performance of equipment and systems to ensure sustainable, energy-efficient operations. This process incorporates daily and monthly reporting from a whole-building perspective that provides a comparison of weather-adjusted baseline and targeted energy consumption to actual, metered consumption.
The M&V reporting process is usually automated using the facility’s Building Automation System (BAS). The feedback presented through the daily scorecard provides staff with the opportunity to be purpose-driven and take ownership of facility operations. The facilities team is not only invested in the big picture, but everyone works toward the same goal: reducing energy consumption and overall net costs.
