MAVCON 17 will be in Birmingham on Thursday 16th November 2017.
As ever, the day will be a mixture of high-quality talks from experts, interactive group exercises, discussion and networking opportunities. So far we have confirmed the following elements:
- David Worthington will give us an update on the Investor Confidence Project. ICP is an international programme all about project financing. It integrates a suite of energy performance protocols to create a consistent and transparent process to bridge between retrofit opportunities on one hand, and investors on the other.
- A major theme this year is non-routine adjustments. Colin Grenville of Erebus Consulting will lead a scenario-based group exercise, and Hilary Wood of EEVS will explain how data from automatic meter reading systems has been used to quantify the effects of changes in static factors. This is a new development in M&V.
- To complement the coverage of individual project verifications, we look at generic evaluation of particular technologies. This year Stephen Barker of Siemens will explain how the efficiency of electric motors is tested.
- Conference organiser Vilnis Vesma will explain the principles behind ‘backcasting’, a verification approach that addresses the problem of inadequate baseline data.
- Drawing on experience with the Re:FIT Cymru programme, Emma Hutchinson will discuss some new initiatives to simplify payback-length M&V, based on what the users really need. She will explain their approach to client training and briefing, and how they use a short ‘quick guide’ Interface Agreement to get buy-in from all parties on their roles and responsibilities.
