The IPMVP® is the energy savings verification protocol most commonly used in the world. Many individuals, such as institution owners and leaders, energy managers and ESCO services suppliers, need to develop a general understanding of the methods used to conduct measurement and verification (M&V), though they do not have to possess in-depth expertise as needed by certified CMVP® professionals.

This training is intended for managers and staff responsible for finance and regulations, as well as technicians who need to have a basic understanding of the roles played by M&V in supporting investment in energy efficiency.
