Improving boiler efficiency by eliminating dry cycling — Sabien’s M2G intelligent boiler controller.

Sabien Technology, which specialises in retrofit controls for boilers, has achieved certification for staff to the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP). David Bakst, operations director and Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMPV), explains, ‘The IPMVP defines a best-practice framework for quantifying the results and benefits of energy-efficiency investments. Importantly, it ensures that there is total clarity and transparency for all parties in relation to the scope of work from initial planning, the measurement methodology, through to the validation of results.’

IPMVP provides a standardised approach to implementing energy-saving initiatives, enabling building operators to quantify the savings that are being achieved — especially when several initiatives are carried out in parallel. IPMVP is becoming recognised as the standard across the USA and Europe and a pre-requisite in energy-performance contracting, where the accuracy of verification is paramount.

Richard Hipkiss, chairman of the Energy Services & Technology Association, comments, ‘It is excellent to see ESTA members commit to making the transparency of savings from demand-side energy reductions a reality through the IPMVP standard. A standardised approach to the measurement of savings is encouraged by ESTA to build the confidence in end users to invest in technology that it literally pays to install.’
