STATE COLLEGE, PA., Sept. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steve Heinz, founder and CEO of EnergyCAP, Inc., has been invited to speak at the World Energy Engineering Conference (WEEC) in Washington, DC, later this month.

Heinz will be discussing the baseline modeling of building energy use and the challenges posed by extreme weather, especially when dealing with assessments for performance contracting.

"In many energy performance contracts, contractor payments and performance guarantees are based on ongoing savings measurement and verification [M&V] reports," said Heinz. "When the M&V process uses a comparison of post-project energy consumption with pre-project baseline consumption, adjustment for significant weather variations is crucial to accuracy. Recent extreme winter weather in much of the country, both extreme cold and extreme mild, has created challenges in classis weather adjustment procedures. I'll be discussing how to identify cases of extreme weather, and how to ensure fairness for both parties in M&V calculations."

This year, WEEC will be held September 21-23 in Washington, DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The Heinz presentation is scheduled for Thursday, September 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

WEEC is an annual international energy conference organized by the Association of Energy Engineers.
