SAEEC Workshop launches M&V Tool

The Southern African Energy Efficiency Confederation (SAEEC), local chapter of the International Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), hosted a workshop to discuss the Measurement and Verification (M&V) Uncertainty Guideline and launched the M&V Tool – ground breaking word done by South Africans in the energy industry.

The event was sponsored by GIZ, SANAS, SANEDI and Faculty Training Institute, and was fully booked and well supported by the industry. Drs Herman Carstens and Dawie Diamond from Invoke Analytics demonstrated the tool with a lot of group interaction between members and non-members of the SAEEC. Karel Steyn, Chair of the Measurement and Verification Council of South Africa (MVCSA) discussed the future of M&V and the possibilities these hold for the industry, with Barry Bredenkamp discussing the current status of M&V in South Africa, and the country’s dependence on quantified information in the energy industry to implement regulations in support of standards.
