Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results.
