Measurement and Verification

National Carbon Bank of Australia (NCBA) has been accredited under the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) Project Impact Assessment with Measurement and Verification (PIAM&V) method since April 2015 and the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Project-Based Activities (PBA) Method since October 2017. These methods use internationally recognised measurement and verification principals to calculate energy savings and generate financial returns from energy conservation measures (ECMs) on behalf of our clients. Measurement and Verification refers to the process of using measurements of electricity or gas consumption to reliably determine savings, which are determined by comparing post-retrofit performance against a ‘business as usual’ forecast.

NCBA employs in house Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals (CMVPs) to manage the application of ECMs and compliance with the PIAM&V method for NSW projects and PBA method for VIC based projects. CMVPs co-ordinate the entire claim process including collecting measurement data, managing the implementation of the ECMs, producing energy models to calculate the energy savings and creating and monetising the resultant certificates. NCBA works collaboratively with our clients to ensure that the required data, documentation and evidence is all collected and validated.
