M&V for EPC

Chair: Christian Lemieux

This application guide is aiming to provide an additional piece of information to the building owner or industrial facility manager that would like to implement an energy efficiency project through an energy performance contract (EPC) involving guaranteed savings by an energy services company (ESCO).

Several problems or interrogations rise during the normal process of preparing an energy efficiency project in ESCO mode. The most important of them were selected and will be addressed in this application guide. These topics will be explained and recommendations will be formulated to building owners and project’s stakeholders, to improve their understanding of the EPC environment, avoiding contract management mistakes.
