Workshop Overview

Many countries and organizations are taking action to manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, a cause of climate change. Projects can reduce or avoid GHG emissions that cause climate change. These actions can reduce the overall emissions of a company or create tradable credits to offset emissions in order to become carbon neutral.

The 5 days workshop will start off with an introduction to GHG Accounting for Projects followed by GHG MRV for Energy Efficiency Projects. An exam will be conducted on the last day.

Key Benefits of Attending

Specifically, after completing this course you will understand:

  • the eligible portion of the actual energy savings, considering the common possibility of competing claims to the ownership of emission reductions, and additionality
  • the relevant IPMVP Option (A, B, C or D), measurement boundaries, baselines, baseline adjustments, and energy computations not in IPMVP
  • area-wide EE programs or policies: common evaluation techniques, the role of deemed values, net-to-gross factors
  • GHG emission factors for on-site and off-site GHG source reductions: reference fuel values, electrical grid factors, transmission losses, and converting different GHGs to CO2 equivalent
  • evaluation and management of offset quality
  • offset marketing
  • requirements for transparent documentation throughout a project’s life

Who Should Attend

Anyone wanting to present energy efficiency projects or programs under a GHG Program, including people who are working with an energy efficiency project or program: designers, developers, managers, consultants, auditors (i.e. validators and verifiers), investors and policy makers. This course is especially relevant to EE professionals seeking to understand the application of GHG accounting principles to their projects, and to carbon management professionals seeking to understand how to use the EE community’s capacity to create carbon offset projects.
