Under the Uniform Methods Project, DOE is developing a set of protocols for determining savings from energy efficiency measures and programs. The protocols provide a straightforward method for evaluating gross energy savings for residential, commercial, and industrial measures commonly offered in ratepayer-funded programs in the United States. The measure protocols are based on a particular International Performance Verification and Measurement Protocol (IPMVP) option, but provide a more detailed approach to implementing that option. Each chapter has been written by technical experts in collaboration with their peers, reviewed by industry experts, and subject to public review and comment.
