Measuring and Benchmarking Energy Performance
* Describe what energy accounting is * Describe energy use index and energy cost index * Explain the concept of load factor for a facility * Describe the equipment and methods needed to perform energy measurement and benchmarking * List examples of efficiency opportunities that can be found using meter interval data * List the common methods for benchmarking * Describe methods to verify energy savings
Measurement and benchmarking appears in two key stages in an efficiency improvement cycle. Before starting an improvement program, measurement and benchmarking helps determine where and to what degree energy is wasted. It also provides a baseline for future comparison. Measurement during the monitoring stage helps identify deviations that need to be corrected, in order to sustain savings. In this course, we'll discuss energy accounting, and examine some of the concepts and methods involved in energy measurement and benchmarking. We'll also explore the components of a utility bill, and provide benchmarking examples to verify charges.
