Energy Information Management
The energy information management team at Sieben Energy Associates (SEA) partners with clients to assemble a comprehensive view of their energy performance. The team gathers, evaluates, and conveys energy data so that it is clear, concise, and meaningful. Many organizations are not leveraging their energy data as well as they could. We help our clients explore the value of information.
The process typically begins with the collection and organization of historical energy usage and cost data. Following an initial evaluation of the available information, SEA can develop a plan for collecting new data and reporting on a recurring basis. SEA is particularly skilled at developing custom monthly, quarterly, and annual reports and presentations to meet clients’ distinct reporting needs. We sort through the reams of energy data for you, extracting and distilling the information to illustrate what you need to know. In addition, if you are pursuing an Energy Star rating for the first time or updating your existing Portfolio Manager account, we have extensive experience profiling buildings. Our energy engineers have validated ratings for dozens of buildings.
SEA’s energy information management team has sound means and methods for analyzing, modeling, and illustrating energy data. We produce metrics and benchmarks that faciliate goal-setting. Many clients rely on standard key performance indicators (KPIs), such as energy use per square foot, or energy use per sales volume, to gauge energy performance. SEA is skilled at interpreting these traditional metrics, but our team has also worked with clients to develop customized KPIs that best fit their unique business models. SEA has the expertise to ensure that the metrics you are using to evaluate your energy performance are accurate and actionable.
We help our clients make sense of their energy use in the manner that is most practical for them. Typical deliverables include charts, graphs, reports, and presentations. We also meet with clients to explain results, answer questions, and plan next steps. If your organization is not making the most of its energy information, SEA can get you started on the process.
Energy information management is critical to energy efficiency, strategic consulting, energy purchasing, and LEED for Existing Buildings. Informed energy-related decisions require a solid understanding of your current and past energy consumption and cost trends. SEA can help you derive the greatest possible value from your energy data.
