AESP is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). AESP complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, AESP is authorized to issue the IACET CEU. AESP instructors disclose in advance that they have no interest in any product, service, or material discussed during the course. This information is stated orally and in the training course handbook.
Course Description: As the US moves increasingly towards higher efficiency and electrification, individual home and building owners have a crucial role to play—to invest in upgrading their properties towards meeting local, state, and national efficiency and carbon reduction goals. But which homes need upgrades, and where do they start? In this course, we will demonstrate how to leverage interval or monthly meter data to detect overall home shell efficiency and space conditioning requirements without a traditional energy audit. We will review the details of our analytics approach as well as show how this technique and resulting information can inform current thermal efficiency levels, right-size new heating and cooling equipment, and analyze the effectiveness of efficiency measures on an on-going basis. We will include findings and analysis for a utility where the approach was applied to over 200,000 thousand customers, as well as customers in the Northwest End Use Load Research (EULR) project.

After taking this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe how interval meter and/or monthly metering data can be combined with basic premises and outdoor temperature data to create a model of customer energy use.
  • Apply model parameters to evaluate overall home efficiency and right-size new heating and cooling equipment.
  • Compare model parameters before and after household efficiency improvements or equipment changes occur, to understand their effect on energy use and project future savings.

*Attendees must earn an 70% or higher on the final course test in order to earn 0.2 CEUs.
