Analyzing and interpreting results facilitates data-driven decision-making. The level of analysis will depend on the detail of the data collected. A few basic analysis techniques include:
- Compare against the baseline—track a building’s or facility’s energy use against itself over time.
- Compare with energy simulation/energy modeling—use an energy modeling tool to evaluate a performance versus potential performance.
- Compare across portfolio—evaluate the performance of individual buildings to similar buildings or the portfolio average.
