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.
Energy Expert is an
award winning technology for
modeling and predicting energy
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.

Energy Expert reports tell you if you
are saving or wasting money on energy.
Set and hit energy and carbon emission
are currently using Energy Expert to track
the implementation of broader energy savings
programs. In these cases, it is used to
ensure that the companies are realizing
savings, provide accurate estimates of those
savings, and ensure their persistence.
In other cases,
customers use Energy Expert to monitor their
ongoing building operations and “flag” unusual
changes in energy use. This enables building
operators to quickly respond to these changes
to minimize their long-term impacts.
Electric utilities are implementing the
Energy Expert for overall tracking of commissioning
and continuous improvement programs.
