Smart meters (also called interval meters) measure and communicate electricity usage in near real-time - they show power usage in short (e.g., 15-minute) periods. By accessing and understanding such data, facility managers, utilities, and contractors may cut costs by trimming peak demand, uncovering hidden energy waste, and employing lower cost-utility and market-based electric rates.
Through in-depth instruction, this seminar covers the basics of ‘smart’ metering, including its use in load management and other cost-cutting utility programs, and ways to cut costs even without such programs. Lindsay Audin (CEM, CEP, LEED AP) walks participants through the catalysts pushing smart metering and the new tariffs they are fostering. Where and how to deploy such metering at facilities will be covered, as well as the costs, paybacks, and options for customer-owned interval metering. A dozen real-life examples are presented to demonstrate how to analyze interval meter data, are covered.
Participants receive and use several advanced Excel-based tools (not available elsewhere) for configuring, visualizing, and analyzing data from smart meters. While not essential, in-class use of a laptop equipped with Excel is encouraged during the afternoon half of the seminar.
The program is designed to benefit a broad base of attendees. It is updated annually across a wide range of topics, these include:Introduction to Smart Metering and Interval Data
