Measurement & Verification

Once your organization makes steps to reduce energy, how can you be certain that your energy efficiency projects are delivering the anticipated results? Palmer Conservation Consultants (PCC) measurement and verification services will reliably determine the savings created by your energy management procedures.

This service requires special project planning, as well as unique engineering practices. PCC will gather building information on a timely basis and translate it into charts and graphs on a “dashboard”, which is basically a computer interface. Your dashboard data will be thoroughly analyzed in order to find any information out of synch.

The purpose of PCC’s measurement and verification review is to:

– Verify that all measurement and verification activities are conducted in accordance with the measurement and verification plan
– Confirm that the reported results of inspections and measurements are accurate and represent actual operation of the equipment or systems involved
– Confirm contractor payments are based on verified savings
– Ensure that measurement and verification activities are properly documented
– Follow-up on any outstanding issues identified

Measurement and verification is one of the most important roles in your energy management program. By partnering with a reliable advocate such as PCC, you can rest-assured that your organization is achieving the promised results.

Building systems today are becoming more and more sophisticated. They are designed to reduce their carbon footprint while maximizing performance, comfort, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency. As these systems get more complex, unfortunately, so do their problems.

Palmer Conservation Consulting (PCC) will act as your commissioning authority to solve these types of issues. In essence, “commissioning” is an elaborate quality-assurance process. This process confirms that building systems are designed, installed and are operating at maximum performance and efficiency. This is a vital step in meeting your energy conservation goals.

If you have an existing building that needs a “tune-up”, PCC can act as its personal “mechanic” through our retro-commissioning process. This method identifies low-cost operational and maintenance improvements in existing buildings and brings the buildings up to the design intentions of its current usage. Typically, this focuses on energy-using equipment such as mechanical equipment, lighting and related controls, and usually optimizes existing system performance, rather than relying on major equipment replacement.

PCC will pinpoint inefficiencies and eliminate waste and unnecessary operating and maintenance costs. This boils down to you seeing a measurable return on investment.
