Welcome to the PERMANENT project website!
The PERMANENT project is aimed at increasing the knowledge about measurement and verification of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Measurement and Verification (M&V) of energy efficiency projects is an important tool towards removing the distrust in projected savings and payback from the site of financial institutions and decision makers on corporate level.
The projects’ main objective is to educate financiers, project developers and energy users about how energy efficiency projects can demonstrate permanent results and how that permanence can break the distrust barrier.
PERMANENT will develop and test harmonized and integrated approaches for end users to measure and verify their energy savings in 5 Member States. The International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and the International Energy Efficiency Financing Protocol (IEEFP) will be the basis for this development.
The PERMANENT project runs from September 2009 until December 2011 and is financed through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme.
