We are very excited to announce that kW Engineering released open source R code today for analyzing site-level, meter-based energy savings. Our will make it much easier for energy efficiency program implementers to analyze energy efficiency project impacts using the normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC)...

Commercial building heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems commonly use variable air volume (VAV) systems for their heating and cooling needs. VAV systems can be more energy efficient when properly controlled and operated. We frequently find these systems performing less than optimally and recommend...

Much of what we do in the energy industry feels very esoteric. So, whenever an opportunity presents itself to incorporate work from other disciplines, like data science, I get really excited. That is what’s happening with ASHRAE Great Energy Predictor Challenge III that just launched...

Unfortunately, in the world of building design, feedback is often lacking. Most architects and engineers work on new buildings, and once commissioning is done, there’s little opportunity (or budget) to review the impact of design choices, positive or negative. Without a feedback loop from commissioning...
