Tracking Energy Management Progress­

You’ve already set goals, but how do you make sure you’re on track to reach them? GridPoint’s three dimensional data helps actively track savings so you know exactly which goals you’re accomplishing and where you may need to improve.

 

 


GridPoint’s 3 Dimensions of Data

 

GridPoint ties customer baseline energy consumption data to the IPMVP empirical model in order to weather-normalize trends. This means GridPoint can accurately calculate the kWh reduction the solution is providing and validate its savings over time.

The IPMVP empirical model takes historical energy consumption data for individual sites, incorporates weather at those sites, and predicts what the energy usage would have been without GridPoint’s solution installed.


Savings Dashboard for a Large Multi-site Customer

 

On top of validating hard savings, GridPoint’s Energy Advisory Services team combs through millions of data points daily to catch any facility issues a site may be experiencing individually or on an enterprise-level. We call these issues exceptions. Quickly identifying and correcting these exceptions keep sites running safely, and keeps you on track to meet your goals. Some exceptions include:

  • HVAC exceptions – Noting recurring issues and performing preventative maintenance to reduce prolonged negative impact to building operation.
  • Lighting exceptions– Minimizing unnecessary lighting consumption by use of control schedules and photo sensors
  • Refrigeration exceptions – Maintaining health and food safety temperature compliance
  • Water heater exceptions – Safeguarding water temperatures to decrease likelihood of waterborne bacteria (i.e. legionnaires disease)
  • Power outages – Notifying customers of outages, especially related to extreme weather storms (i.e. hurricanes, blizzards, flooding)
  • Voltage Imbalances – Notifying customers of high voltage imbalances which can have a negative impact on motors. Customers can then notify the utility to resolve the issue
