- 3rd July 2023
MECS is seeking to appoint a consultant/team to review the technical needs and available resources related to the new Gold Standard Methodology for Metered and Measured Energy Cooking Devices and other similar standards.
There are many different technical and organisational approaches for meeting the requirements for measuring cooking device usage. Some technology developers plan standalone meters attached to stoves, others are building meters in, and others are proposing to represent energy use based on proxies, such as the stove power setting selected by the user. Furthermore, developers are taking different approaches to onboard data storage, and to the arrangements for data transmission, for example dedicated GSM or Bluetooth to a smartphone. Different approaches will bring different characteristics for a project, in terms of the device cost, expected accuracy of individual measurements, and the likely coverage across stove users. MECS would like to assist companies in meeting the requirements of the new Gold Standard metered methodology for certifying emission reductions and the related Digital MRV reporting platform. This review should encompass an exploration of the landscape of digital MRV requirements and available solutions.
Submissions should be a maximum of 12 pages with up to 3 additional CVs (no more than 2 pages each).
Quotations, should be received no later than 23:59 BST on Wednesday 2nd August 2023 and should be submitted MECS (Mecs@lboro.ac.uk) with the subject ‘Technical Needs Review’.
