How It Can Help You

Measure Energy Project Impact With Software That Normalizes Utility Bills For Weather

Energy Managers

  • Assess whether your utility bill changes are due to energy initiatives or weather flucuations
  • Generate whole-building measurement & verification method for your energy conservation measures
  • Reduce the time and money spent on measurement & verification of energy project impacts

Contractors

  • Prove that your energy projects are saving your clients money
  • Reduce effort and time to provide energy savings verification
  • You need a lower cost alternative to performance contracting measurement & verification

Facility Owners

  • Create simple, straight-forward approaches to performance contract monitoring
  • Ensure your projects are actually saving money and energy
  • Generate statistically relevant analysis of your energy projects

How It Works

UBER-Verify stands for "Utility Bill Energy Resource" Verification. It shows if your utility bills are due to changes to your energy project impact or attributable to weather variation.

The software uses advanced machine learning algorithms to statistically estimate the equivalent energy usage compared to a pre-project baseline. The results show side-by-side comparison of energy use from the baseline and assessment periods as if each had exactly the same weather.

The methods employed by UBER-Verify are suitable to meet ASHRAE measurement and verification standards.

Example Bill Analysis

Baseline Period: 1/1/2016 - 12/31/2016
Assessment Period: 1/1/2017 - 12/31/2017
Model Fit: 0.83

The fitness of the baseline model is also given a numeric value to help determine its suitability for analysis. In addition to the above chart, UBER-Verify also provides information in table form and information on any outlier bills that may need to be assessed by other means, such as with our Model-Ease software.
