Purpose of Evaluation and Studies

Dominion Energy routinely conducts energy related studies throughout the year in compliance with regulatory orders, rules, and other legislative requirements in Virginia and North Carolina for evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V) and studies. These requirements are listed in the table at the bottom of this webpage. These requirements outline the metrics to be studied, study methodologies, and reporting formats.

The EM&V study results are used to (1) measure and verify energy and peak load savings for individual programs, groups of programs and at the portfolio level, (2) generate the data for savings estimates and cost-effectiveness inputs, (3) measure and evaluate the achievements of the performance basis, and (4) evaluate whether programs or portfolio goals are met.
