A method has been developed for the measurement of accelerator beam energies to an accuracy approaching one part in 105. As a check, the energy of a resonance in 27Al(p,γ) at Ep = 0.992 MeV has been determined. In addition, a new determination of a resonance energy in 16O(p,po) at Ep = 6.50 MeV has been made. Finally, a provisional value for the 14N(p,n)14O threshold energy has been obtained.
