Role of the Qualified Technical Service Provider

The Qualified Technical Service Provider (QTSP) is responsible for providing the Applicant with technical data and guidance for projects that will reduce GHG emissions.

In support of a funding application, the QTSP is required to provide a proposal to the Applicant that will include the type of work to be conducted, the process that will be applied, time frame, breakdown of costs, and expected outcomes.

A QTSP may perform Assessments and may also provide post-project Measurement & Verification (M&V) reports.

1. Walk-through Assessment: The purpose of the walk-through assessment is to determine if there is a potential project at a facility that would qualify under the SMART Green program for project funding. This type of assessment is for Applicants that do not have a specific GHG reduction project in mind and do not know where to start. For Applicants that do have an assessment in mind, they can go straight to a detailed technical assessment. During the walk-through assessment the QTSP should make notes on all of the processes/equipment at the facility and ask relevant questions such as age of equipment and operating hours. The QTSP should then determine if there are any potential projects that should be assessed in detail that would lower the GHG emissions of the processes and/or equipment. The results of the walk-through should be presented in a report. Please refer to our suggested walkthrough report outline.

2. Detailed Technical Assessment, with or without gas metering: The purpose of the detailed technical assessment is to support a SMART Green project application. A detailed technical assessment is a requirement when applying for project funding. If an Applicant has had a detailed assessment completed in the last 12 months, this may be sufficient to support a project application, as long as it contains the minimum requirements. The detailed technical assessment will include the calculation of the facility baseline GHG emissions (to an accuracy of +/-15%), the baseline GHG emissions for the equipment or process that is the subject of the project application (to an accuracy of +/-15%), and the calculation of the expected GHG reductions that will be achieved through project implementation (to an accuracy of (+/-15%). The detailed technical application should also include an estimate of all capital costs and other eligible expenses associated with the project (to an accuracy of +/-25%). Please refer to our suggested detailed technical assessment report outline.

3. Measurement and Verification (M&V) Report: The M&V report is prepared at the completion of a project. The purpose of the M&V report is to verify that the GHG reductions achieved post-project implementation are in line with the expected reductions based on the detailed technical assessment. Completing an M&V report is a requirement to receiving full project funding. The M&V report must be provided by a 3rd party auditor at arm's length of the project; for example, the equipment vendor cannot provide the M&V report. The M&V plan should be finalized with a SMART Green Technical Advisor prior to the completion of the project. Please refer to our suggested M&V report outline.

CME does not suggest or promote any consultant over another and therefore any and all work related to the program must be self-managed. CME makes no guarantee of the value or quality of work by the QTSP; CME is not responsible for any services provided by the QTSP including the accuracy of any advice provided or for the consequences of adhering to such advice.
