In order to make an informed decision, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your consumption patterns. Measurement and Verification or M&V is a formal process used to construct an energy baseline. An energy baseline is the characterization of energy consumption given certain energy drivers (like lighting, HVAC etc.).
Once a baseline has been established, you can effectively evaluate your home or business. A direct comparison between your energy usage year-on-year is not an apples-to-apples comparison because production volumes, occupancy, climatic conditions etc. could differ widely between one year and the next. Whether you are a home owner simply looking at taking control of your electricity consumption to reduce your electricity bill, or whether you are a commercial business trying to get a better understanding of your energy profile in your business you need to set a baseline to start from. Simply having all this data and not understanding is also means nothing. Let us assist you in assessing your home or business in finding cost effective ways to reduce your energy bill.
