Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to compare Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification (EM&V) standards established by Arkansas and surrounding states. EM&V is the process to quantify the energy savings of an energy management project. This paper details the rules and regulation regarding the EM&V proceedings required by investor-owned utilities in providing energy-saving projects. By comparison of each state’s requirement, a clear understanding is found on where Arkansas stands in maturity of its program requirements. The reader will find Arkansas on the forefront of EM&V standardization that represents a model that surrounding states are striving to emulate.
