Unexpected M&V result helps company shape savings plan

Coastal Shopping Mall

JCM was asked to perform an M&V project for this shopping mall assessing a cooling system energy conservation measure (ECM) similar to one done previously and a second ECM to be implemented simultaneously. The aim was to determine overall savings and to allocate savings to each of the two ECMs.

JCM was able to identify savings of up to 20% attributable to one ECM but no savings to the other. Without M&V it wouldn't have been possible to know which projects were producing which effects.

This M&V project enabled our client to challenge their provider about the efficacy of the supplied product and helped them make business decisions about which ECMs to roll out across their other malls.
