Danforth’s Scott Janssen Demonstrates Expertise In NYSCOSS Article Publication
Energy Engineering Manager Scott Janssen, PE, CEM, LEED AP recently had an article published in the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS) End of the Year Councilgram. Janssen’s article was on Measurement & Verification and gave an in – depth explanation as to how it works in the world of Energy Performance Contracting.
“The process of measurement and verification actually analyzes energy efficiencies before and after an energy project. It is a way to see first hand the actual savings that results from equipment and lighting upgrades – along with other measures that may have been included. It is part of the guarantee phase that showcases both operational (spend) and energy savings front and center for the client,” Janssen said.
Janssen acknowledges that the notion of Energy Performance Contracting has a number of different pieces involved and wanted to take this opportunity to break down the Measurement & Verification piece into its own article to help K-12 Districts grasp a better understanding as to how the M&V piece works. “M&V is the “icing on the cake” when it comes to finalizing an Energy Project. It ties the entire project together and provides the necessary data so that the client can “verify” how the project investment pays for itself.”
Earlier this year, Janssen brainstormed different concepts to help K-12 clients with Marketing Specialist Christina Crane. “We really wanted to focus on parts of the EPC that can get complex and could use a detailed explanation to grasp of better understanding. When everyone involved in a project fully understands how the project will work, it is a win for everyone involved,” Crane said.
