UJ Measurement and Verification Team

Measurement and Verification (M&V) is a standardized process used to determine energy savings. The standard process used to determine energy savings is founded on scientific and engineering techniques. This scientific and engineering foundation allows the M&V process to be applied in tasks that contain uncertainties. For example, in determining the savings from an installation of a new air-conditioner in an office space, comparing monthly bills will not give a true indication of the energy savings due to fluctuations in weather and occupants. M&V provides a method to determine the avoided energy costs from energy efficiency projects taking into account the changes in operating conditions.

These services are

  • To provide Measurement & Verification of energy savings for electricity utility demand side management programs, municipalities/government and private companies applying for tax incentives or where there is a need to verify and audit energy efficiency project results
  • Performing energy audits to ascertain cost and energy savings
  • Partaking in Energy Conservation Measures Processes
  • Evaluating renewable energy technologies and emerging technologies

The University Of Johannesburg‘s Measurement and Verification Team consists of Certified Energy Managers (CEM) and Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals (CMVP) who are equipped and well able to provide services that follow the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).​​
