Energy Expert

Energy Expert incorporates a modeling algorithm developed in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy that uses energy interval data and weather data to generate reliable feedback about how a building is performing in terms of energy use.

More specifically, the methodology used in Energy Expert is bin-based, where the bin is a set of values of a dependent variable (energy interval data) with which the value of another independent variable (outdoor air temperature) is associated. To explain variations in energy use, two or more descriptive variables such as day of the week, hour of the day and outdoor air temperature are used. The model is trained by collecting data and assigning it to bins. The median of the values of the dependent variable (energy interval data) in the bin serves as a good representative value for both large and small numbers of samples per bin. This median value is the expected or modeled energy value.

This sophisticated, yet easy-to-use software application trains itself to create a "smart model" of your building and compares daily energy consumption against this norm. The Energy Expert will tell you whether your facility over-consumed, under-consumed or used about the right amount of energy through a convenient email notification.


Description

Energy Expert helps cut energy costs through improved operational efficiency in commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, warehouses, government-owned buildings with the list still growing.

Powered by a building modeling algorithm developed in cooperation with Department of Energy / Pacific NorthWest National Laboratory. Energy Expert incorporates both interval energy data and weather data to generate reliable feedback about how a building is performing.

Energy Expert delivers simple, easy to interpret results on a daily basis to allow concise and immediate detection of issues and encourage energy consumption watchfulness to support your energy initiatives.
