Linear Regression in EnergyDeck: how to make the most of it

Bruno Girin

July 04, 2013

If you've been entering meter readings, you may have noticed a new tab in the Meter Details view (the view you get when clicking on any meter name in the Setup section) called Regression Analysis. This post provides a quick tour of the new functionality.

More Spring Features: Organisational Hierarchy Part 2 (Aggregation)

Bruno Girin

May 30, 2013

As promised in part 1, we've improved the organisation hierarchy features over the past few weeks. You can now run reports at any level of the organisation.

In Trend Analysis, you will now see up to three types of meters at every organisation level:

  1. Grand Total: Sites Total + Sub-Units Total (in other words, Grand Total gives you the aggregate value of all total* meters at this level and all underlying levels of the organisation)
  2. Sites Total: shows the aggregate value of all total meters from sites allocated to this level (but not at organisation levels underneath, e.g. for sub-units)
  3. Sub-Units Total: shows the aggregate value of all total meters from sites allocated to underlying organisation units (but not for sites at the active organisation level)

Green Deal or No Deal Part 3: Number Crunching

Bruno Girin

May 22, 2013

Following part 1 and part 2, I received the official assessment a while back. Here is a quick analysis of the content and subsequent research on my part.

Basic Numbers

The Green Deal assessment I received is a 5 page PDF document. The very first thing that it tells me is that my current situation could be worse:

So my household consumes less than the typical household. This is probably due to my habits rather than the building being energy efficient: I am out during the day, I tend to switch lights off when I'm not in a room and will put a fleece on when it's a bit chilly rather than switch on the heating. The side effect of this, as the rest of the document attests, is that my saving potential is lower than average.

Spring Feature Set: Organisational Hierarchy Part 1 and Feedback

Bruno Girin

May 17, 2013

You know how time goes fast when you're busy doing interesting things? The last month has just whooshed past at EnergyDeck and we released the new features we've been working on earlier this week. This is a quick tour of the most important ones.

Organisation Hierarchy

Any organisation of a certain size has a structure that is not flat. It is important for such organisations to be able to understand their energy data in a way that reflects their internal hierarchy so we added the ability for such customers to do just that. As a picture is worth a thousand words, here is an example of this in action:

Green Deal or No Deal - Part 2: Assessment & Recommendations

Bruno Girin

March 04, 2013

In the first installement of this series, I detailed what the Green Deal was about and how I went about arranging an assessment, which is the first step in getting anything done. I had the assessment last week so it's now time to report back on how it went.

Price and Output

As detailed in my previous post, it took five calls before I reached someone who really knew what I wanted and could organise an assessment. Or so I thought. The second company on my list did call me back eventually, at which point I had to tell them that because they had called me two weeks after I had sent a request, I had already booked with someone else.
