Chapter 7

Measurement and Verification Models for Cost-Effective Energy-Efficient Retrofitting

E. Burman and D. Mumovic,    University College London (UCL), London, United Kingdom

Abstract

This chapter provides a review of the main protocols and standards used in the construction industry for measurement and verification (M&V) of retrofit projects. Various M&V options have been reviewed. Key drivers for and barriers against M&V are also discussed. Improving energy efficiency of the existing building stock and energy performance contracting are among the key drivers for M&V. On the other hand, poor energy performance data, technical risks associated with longitudinal changes in building context, and the cost and complexity of M&V are key barriers ...
