Advanced M&V That's Automated & Accurate
EcoNNet is a data analytics tool developed to deliver accurate measurement and verification of energy and demand savings using utility smart meter data that are readily available.
EcoNNet lets AI and machine learning do the hard work of developing statistical models. We provide minimal data cleaning and identify the analysis periods, and the EcoNNet routines quickly find the optimal model algorithm, fit it to the baseline data using cross-validation, and provide performance period predictions.
Buildings are nearly infinitely variable. The EcoNNet modeling approach can work with customers form any segment, any industry, and any size. The results can be aggregated for any time period. The model can use as many or as few operational data streams as are available.
Verify Demand Impacts
EcoNNet leverages the granularity of interval data to calculate on-peak, seasonal peak, or critical peak demand savings that coincide with the time of day and time of year that matter for utilities.
Minimal Data Entry
Interval data is all that's required. EcoNNet automatically scans for the nearest high quality weather station to gather historical or typical weather data. Many customers also track operational metrics, such as production, occupancy, or sales transactions.
EcoNNets automated routines process data quickly, reducing time lag. EcoNNet can provide initial results as soon as a month after projects are implemented, letting users monitor whole building performance during the year.
Engaging visuals are essential to communicating value clearly. EcoNNet presents results and key metrics in easy to absorb and printable graphics. The tools can also export data in standard formats to integrate with other program or customer systems.
Easily Track and Monitor Hourly Energy Savings
Track Savings Over Time
EcoNNet can track energy usage and savings results monthly, quarterly, annually, or more often if interval data is available. We will work with utilities to securely access data at convenient intervals to provide updates as often as desired.
Time and Location Value of Energy Efficiency
EcoNNet hourly savings results can clearly delineate the time or locational value of energy efficiency programs.
Reduce Customer Burden
Utilizing EcoNNet can completely eliminate the need for detailed site visits with intrusive metering.
EcoNNet can securely verify as many customers as needed. Results are reported and recorded for each individual site.
Results That Meet or Exceed Industry Standards and Protocols
EcoNNet delivers verified energy and demand savings consistent with IPMVP, ASHRAE, ISO-5001 and NMEC standards. Our platform also exceeds requirements set by RTOs such as PJM and ISO-New England.
Automatically Test Thousands of Models
We developed a framework with the singular goal of accurately modeling energy and demand savings. The EcoNNet engine tests thousands of models from simple linear regression to advanced artificial neural networks to find which works best for each customer.
