Using EMIS Tools to Support Energy Analysis and M&V
Dramatic advances in software over the last 10 years enable energy engineers to efficiently collect and analyze energy consumption and cost data and quickly and easily produce informative reports and interactive views. These energy analysis tools that address all phases of the analysis process from data collection and normalization, through analysis, visualization and reporting. Tasks that took hours or longer can now be processed automatically, reducing costs to end users and allowing energy professionals to provide deeper analysis and more comprehensive reporting of key findings and recommendations.
In this presentation we will look at 5 examples of energy analysis:
• Calculating, Presenting and Tracking Key Performance Indicators and KPI Trends
• Historical view of KPI trends over time
• Meter data visualization, analysis and reporting – starting with energy demand and consumption
• Baseline analysis employing a variety of data views
• Combining energy use and tariff data to calculate actual energy costs from facility meter data
These examples highlight some of the most effective and informative energy analysis functions and show how analysis that used to require deep expertise with tools is now easily accomplished to streamline analysis and M&V efforts.
