Proven Results Tracking

SEG’s process is results-driven from beginning to end. Our program utilizes whole building meter regression analysis that is compatible with the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol Option C to measure actual energy savings. This proven system is currently used effectively by a number of SEG’s utility sponsored programs.

To provide utility and end-users with a streamlined tracking system, SEG also has built a proprietary M&V tool utilized for both customer performance tracking and utility impact evaluations. Customers can use the output to quickly recognize and address changes in performance so that results are always transparent, verifiable, and maintainable.
