Energy Cybernetics’ Yolanda de Lange recently attended the Council for Measurement and Verification Professionals of SA (CMVPSA) Annual General Meeting (AGM), and reports that some exciting developments are taking place, spurred on by the recent release of the 12L energy efficiency tax incentive. To obtain a 12L energy efficiency tax incentive, and get the SANAS process started, one needs to have passed matric and present a certificate which confirms that they have attended M&V training. During the SANAS process, assessors will review a practitioner’s competence, based on the criteria as required for the particular scope of M&V work that they are requiring accreditation for with SANAS.
The AGM confirmed that an examination-based accreditation system remain in place. The CMVPSA board made a commitment that the currently accepted requirements for full membership of the association will be maintained to ensure that credibility in the market is maintained at the highest level. Under a new governance structure, CMVPSA will offer a choice of training courses and a choice of qualification level/scope and it is then up to each individual to decide what they wish to achieve within the broader, growing M&V industry. A show of hands vote indicated that industry wants an open and transparent M&V training market, so additional training courses and training service providers will become available, under the new CMVPSA banner, which includes training and courses on energy legislation, metering, installation, etc.
