EM&V for Energy Efficiency Policies and Initiatives

Evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V) helps investments in demand-side energy efficiency (EE) achieve intended environmental, energy, and economic goals. This paper briefly describes the status of EE policies and initiatives, identifies the associated objectives, and provides discussion and examples of how EM&V is typically tailored to the objectives for that policy or strategy. It is intended as a primer for representatives of jurisdictions, companies, electricity planning organizations, and other entities that are using or considering using EE to achieve their goals.
