New GSEP guide for calculating and reporting energy savings
September 16, 2014 - A new guide published by the Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP) Energy Management Working Group—“Measurement & Verification Process for Calculation and Reporting on Energy and Demand Performance—aims to help organizations assess the impacts of energy efficiency projects.
By Anthony Capkun
“This guide provides much-needed and simple ‘How-To’ instructions for M&V [measurement & verification] professionals to facilitate a consistent and comparable process for M&V,” explained Karel Steyn, energy performance verification specialist at Eskom, South Africa, the project lead for this activity.
The guide promises practical, step-by-step instructions on performing M&V for a project and helps quantify energy savings. By following the steps in the guide, M&V practitioners will be able to quantify the impact or performance of a particular implemented measure.

Global Superior Energy Performance aims to cut global energy use by encouraging the industrial and commercial buildings sectors to continually improve their energy efficiency. The Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) seeks to accelerate EnMS (energy management systems) use in industry and commercial buildings worldwide. Governments participating in the EMWG include Australia, Canada, Denmark, the European Commission, India, Japan, Mexico, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, Sweden and the United States. The GSEP initiative was launched in 2010 by the Clean Energy Ministerial and the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation.
