     Training based on the IPMVP protocol by EVO
      including IPMVP Training.

    The only real way to ensure the long term achievement and persistence of energy
    savings is to establish, up-front, a cost-effective measurement and verification plan
    that is followed throughout the useful life of the energy assets installed.

    Today, the International Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) is the leading
    international standard in M&V for energy efficiency projects. IPMVP's flexible
    framework has proven successful in all types of programs and projects and its use has
    grown as a consequence. It has been translated into 10 languages and is used in
    more than 40 countries. Five thousand copies are downloaded for free from the EVOs
    website annually. IPMVP 2007 has just been launched as of May 2007 and its creating
    a lot of enthusiasms in the market. It has already be adopted by many countries
    around the world including in Europe.

    This half-day seminar will provide an opportunity to present the new IPMVP 2007 and
    to see how its different methodologies can be applied in the ESCO market place in
    Europe and abroad. This will be a rare opportunity to gain a hands-on understanding
    of the proven IPMVP savings measurement methods and related risk mitigation
    strategies successfully employed in projects around the world. Emphasis on the new
    improvement of the Protocol will be made to focus the IPMVP users on these new

    The trainer for the event will be Mr. Pierre Langlois, President of Econoler International
    and Vice Chair of EVO. He has been involved in the development and implementation
    of performance-based energy efficiency projects for more than 20 years in more than
    30 countries, and has gained an important experience on the European market.
