Measurement and Verification


Adelante supported the Department of Energy during the analysis and review of the Measurement and Verification Plan submitted by NORESCO as part of their energy savings performance contract developed for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).  NORESCO performed lighting audits in approximately 1.6 million square feet, and heating, ventilating and air conditioning audits in approximately 700,000 square feet of LANL building space.  Adelante evaluated the validity of the methodologies used to estimate energy savings resulting from proposed lighting and HVAC retrofits, installation of energy management systems and the utilization of setbacks.
