Turning Data into Knowledge–and Action

Carl Weinschenk

Mountains of data are becoming available to energy managers. The challenge is processing and displaying it all in ways that make the goals – increasing efficiency and saving money – more likely to be realized.


Affordable Housing Pushes Energy Efficiency

Carl Weinschenk

It may sound counter-intuitive, but the biggest mover in energy efficiency in the multi-family dwelling unit sector is housing for people with low incomes.

It’s Check-In Time for Hotel Energy and Water Management

Carl Weinschenk

From an energy efficiency standpoint, hotels seem to have much in common with office buildings. And they indeed do: Hotels and office buildings generally are large structures that often are managed in portfolios. Increasing energy efficiency at a hotel involves many of the same technical steps as doing so in an office. But there are significant differences. MACH   …Continue Reading


DoE Launches Smart Energy Analytics Campaign

Carl Weinschenk

The Department of Energy (DoE) last week launched the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign. The goal, the DoE says, is to increase adoption of Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) by commercial building owners and operators. Even if operating correctly at a given point, buildings can quickly go “out of tune.” EMIS systems use analytics to   …Continue Reading


Utility Data Aggregation: How to Take the Best Approach

Jennifer Hermes

Energy services and software providers tend to perform a variety of strategic activities, including performing building audits, evaluating peak demand, implementing energy efficiency products for customers, qualifying customers’ risks in deregulated energy markets, creating detailed energy reports, etc. All of these activities have one, rather cumbersome thing in common: they require the aggregation of utility data, and manual approaches are inefficient and   …Continue Reading


Energy Management Gets Granular with the IoT

Carl Weinschenk

The granularity of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it arguably the most important fundamental change in the energy management landscape in decades. The key is the ability of the IoT — along with the cloud and big data analytics, two other important new fundamental tools – to burrow deep within a building to find inefficiencies   …Continue Reading


New Energy Management System Reveals Issues & Opportunities

Jennifer Hermes

This article is sponsored by EnergyCAP. One month before Jason Laros stepped into the post of city energy manager for Tucson, AZ, the city began an energy management software acquisition process. At the time, the city’s energy office was employing interns to help crunch the numbers on the top 20–30 buildings in spreadsheets. Historical utility   …Continue Reading


How to Simplify Building Energy Benchmarking & Transparency Laws

Jennifer Hermes

The upcoming deadlines for local building energy benchmarking and transparency laws makes this a busy time of year for building owners. The laws aim to reduce energy consumption (and environmental and financial costs as a result) in the building sector. These are local laws, so they differ from one city to the next, but they   …Continue Reading


SWEEP Says Utilities are Embedding Energy Experts in Customer Orgs

Carl Weinschenk

Many companies would like professional help for their energy management endeavors. For most, however, it is too expensive to hire an individual to fill that role. Inserting somebody already on staff into that position presents its challenges as well. Energy management is a diverse and complex field, so significant training is necessary. And, of course,   …Continue Reading
