Energy benchmarking has changed.
Thanks to submetering and automatic meter reading, gone are the days of the almost useless "shame and blame" whole-building comparisons of kWh per square metre per annum. Now we can compare one function against another (lighting, air conditioning or general power for example) showing not just quantitative rankings but qualitative comparisons that yield real insights. Which buildings are doing best in which respect? What clues can we get from patterns of consumption in poor performers?
In this lunchtime lecture Vilnis Vesma tells the story of a multi-premises benchmarking study using the new techniques developed for the age of disaggregated automatic meter readings. He covers:
- Ranking with disaggregated performance indicators
- Pattern comparison using heatmap visualisation
- Comparing fixed and variable consumption as separate phenomena
- From passive comparison to active diagnosis
- Optimising submeters
- Prioritising biggest opportunities first
Organised for readers of the Energy Management Register newsletter, this is a great opportunity to meet your opposite numbers in energy management and counts as 3.5 hours of CPD contact time.
