Tip: The following section can be edited by the webmaster as needed. It does not have to be about Whitepapers. You can edit that to be anything. To add, delete or reposition sections of the accordion, use the concentric arrows button in the editing toolbar at the top. When typing or inserting text into an accordion and there is more than one paragraph, you MUST use "shift + enter" between paragraphs. Be sure that you do not accidentally just use the "enter" key to separate the paragraphs. It will look OK but after you publish the page, the text after the 'enter' may no longer be editable.

Recently completed research:

1404-RP: MEASUREMENT, MODELING, ANALYSIS AND REPORTING PROTOCOLS FOR SHORT-TERM M&V OF WHOLE BUILDING ENERGY PERFORMANCE
The objective of this research is to develop a new method to determine the shortest time period for energy use monitoring involving hourly (or sub-hourly) data that will yield reliable and accurate long term energy use estimates within acceptable uncertainty limits. By evaluating the uncertainty in the measured data as the monitoring period progresses, the new method will allow users to evaluate the energy performance and calculate energy savings in commercial and institutional buildings, in a cost-effective short-term monitoring period instead of the current year-long monitoring stipulated in most M&V protocols. The new approach would resolve the problem of needing long-term monitored data, which is often very costly to obtain and/or historically unavailable. In addition, this measurement/extrapolation approach should be designed as simply as possible to meet the uncertainty targets in energy savings stipulated in M&V protocols such as ASHRAE Guideline 14.
