FEMP M&V Guidelines

The central federal measurement and verification (M&V) document, the Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP's) M&V Guidelines:Measurement and Verification for Federal Energy Projects, Version 3.0, provides procedures for quantifying the savings resulting from the installation of energy conservation measures. The Guidelines are fully compatible and consistent with the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol. Intended for use in Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) and other federal energy conservation projects, the Guidelines provide the methodology for establishing energy cost savings called for in the Department of Energy's final rule on conducting ESPCs in federal facilities.

A proposed revision to FEMP's M&V guidance for renewable energy projects (FEMP M&V Guidelines: Draft Renewable Energy Guide) is also available.
