An Excel-based tool for analyzing data to find and measure energy savings
ECAM (Energy Charting and Metrics) facilitates the analysis of data from buildings or meters, reducing the time spent analyzing trend and utility meter data. It accelerates ad hoc data charting and summarization. It supports the DOE-funded Building Re-tuning process with automated charts. It provides a transparent means for measurement and verification (M&V) of energy savings, adherent to the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and using methods from ASHRAE Guideline 14, Measurement and Verification of Energy, Demand, and Water Savings. ECAM includes functions that make it easy to integrate data gathered at different time intervals, including change-of-value (COV) data. ECAM is widely used, including as BPA’s platform for commercial SEM and custom M&V, and as an aid both nationally and internationally for IPMVP training.
