#1 - ISO 50047: Quantifying Energy Savings
Energy savings — Determination of energy savings in organizations
This educational training will take you through ISO 50047:2016 (International Organization for Standardization) approaches for the determination of energy savings in organizations. It can be used by all organizations, whether or not they have an energy management system, such as ISO 50001. Energy accounting and avoidance of double-counting are key features of the course. Energy savings calculations forms a foundation for the M&V of energy savings. The calculations also support the IPMVP’s four options of M&V.
- Introduction to ISO 50000 series and ISO 50047
- Organizational context, scope & boundaries
- Top down and bottom up approaches
- Energy accounting – primary & delivered energy
- Baselines, adjustments & normalisation
- Calculation principles, uncertainty & data quality
- Reporting, renewables and carbon
#2 - ISO 50015: Best Practice M&V Guidelines
Energy management systems — Measurement and verification of energy performance of organizations
This educational training explores ISO 50015 (International Organization for Standardization). The course is method-agnostic and puts into place, structures and templates that can be used in conjunction with the industry leading standard International Performance Measurement Verification protocol (IPMVP) to provide an extra layer of credibility and transparency when developing Measurement & Verification (M&V) plans and demonstrating quantified savings results.
- Introduction to 50000 series and 50015
- Energy savings concept refresher
- IPMVP refresher (includes for those not familiar with the protocol and its four basic M&V options)
- IPMVP plan examples
- Integrating the ISO 50015 standard to the IPMVP
- 500015 in detail: planning and savings reports
- Templates and quiz to finish with
#3 - ISO 50006: Energy Baselines
Energy management systems — Evaluating energy performance using energy performance indicators and energy baselines
Establishing energy baselines from data are fundamental to quantifying energy savings accurately. There are several ways to develop baselines (the IPMVP, for example, also references retrofit, partial retrofit and whole facility approaches). This educational course covering ISO 50006:2023 (International Organization for Standardization) will take you through the development of energy baselines with a practical example using regression analysis; how the M&V plan (Measurement & Verification) is then developed and concludes with a savings report with a project example. Tools and templates are provided.
- Introduction to 50000 series and 50006
- Identifying, setting, and using EnPis and EnBs
- Adjustments: relevant variables and static factors Performance evaluation
- Practical development of an IPMVP-adherent M&V plan and savings reports
- Use of Excel spreadsheets, regression equations
- Quiz and questions & answers
Who should attend?
Energy managers, facility managers, building owners, building operators, M&V professionals, PMVA's, government energy policy makers or energy office officials, health sector professionals, energy data analysts, energy consultants, stakeholders or energy project investors, lawyers etc. wishing to better understand the ISO series in energy management when it comes to energy savings projects.
Note: The ISO standards themselves are not offered as part of the course but may be purchased directly from ISO.org.
