2008-2009 Energy Information Systems:
State of the Technology and User Case Studies

Summary of Work

EIS technology has evolved and advanced over the last several years, and a number of new tools have been introduced to the market. Building upon prior work at LBNL [Motegi and Piette 2003], this study defines a framework to evaluate EIS according to a common language to better understand the spectrum of features and capabilities that are available, and how one offering is distinguished from another. The framework is applied to representative commercial offerings to evaluate the sate of the technology in 2010. Leading-edge user case studies are conducted to understand the specific uses of EIS in real-world organizations (e.g. measurement and verification, portfolio benchmarking, operational diagnostics) and to document the energy savings attributable to use of the technology. Presentations from meetings of the Technical Advisory Group are posted below, and 2 publications are posted on the homepage: the final report [Granderson et al 2009], and an Energy Efficiency article documenting the user case studies [Granderson et al 2010].
