nmecr, an open-source R package we developed, analyzes commercial building energy consumption using a meter-based, whole-building approach for site-specific measurement and verification (M&V) of energy efficiency projects.
The goal of nmecr is to provide a free analysis toolset for M&V using a normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC) approach to increase the cost-effectiveness of verifying project energy savings.
nmecr makes it easier and more cost-effective to analyze the impact of energy saving projects using NMEC approaches
Using a comprehensive, open-source code library, nmecr offers enhanced NMEC M&V analysis in single package for the first time, and is free for use under the MIT open source license. Features include:
By streamlining analysis of energy efficiency projects, we can devote more resources to finding more energy savings in more buildings
We can help with nmecr installation, customization and training. Utility programs and organizations in these areas currently use nmecr:
We provided NMEC M&V analysis using nmecr for two lab projects at the University of California Santa Barbara as part of the HOPPs initiative which was co-funded by SoCalGas and Southern California Edison.
