DICTIONARY

Weather Normalization

Weather normalization is a process that adjusts actual energy consumption or peak outcomes to what would have happened under normal weather conditions. By running a regression to remove weather as a variable, an energy manager can assess consumption between two time periods to determine the influence of other energy consumption variables such as occupancy, new retrofits, or new insulation.

Why It Matters

Energy Management software can provide automatic weather normalization. This helps building teams make better decisions and carry out accurate measurement and verification of the impact of energy retrofits and other capital projects.
