IPMVP® Public Library of Documents
The IPMVP library of documents consists of the various volumes of the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). The IPMVP provides an overview of current best practice techniques available for verifying results of energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy projects in commercial and industrial facilities. It may also be used by facility operators to assess and improve facility performance.
Energy conservation measures (ECMs) covered in the protocol include fuel saving measures, water efficiency measures, load shifting and energy reductions through installation or retrofit of equipment, and/or modification of operating procedures.

Concepts and Options for Determining Energy and Water Savings - Volume I
Volume I defines basic terminology used in the M&V field. It defines general procedures to achieve reliable and cost-effective determination of savings. Verification of actual savings is done relative to an M&V Plan for each project. This Volume is written for general application in measuring and verifying the performance of projects which improve energy or water efficiency in buildings and industrial plants.
