25 Oct Energy Efficiency Data Insights: How Efficient Is My Building?
A few months ago, DEXMA launched Energy Grader, a free tool that enables you to assess your energy efficiency data to discover potential savings, anywhere and at any time, for free.
Energy Grader is a free energy efficiency calculator that shows you how much money you can save on energy and what it means for your company’s bottom line. The resulting report also gives you a benchmark of energy prices across your industry, so you can confirm that you are getting a fair price for your energy.
It works by combining DEXMA’s patented Big Data algorithms with information from a vast amount of data points (learn more about that key concept here) from more than 10 000 buildings in the DEXMA database.
To learn more about Energy Grader, check out this handy introduction.
Insights from Grader Energy Efficiency Data
Hundreds of buildings have been Graded since the launch, and the DEXMA Product Team has come out with some pretty interesting insights that we wanted to share with you.
Where Is Energy Grader Being Used?
From Botswana to Hong Kong, companies from all over the world are using this free tool to discover their energy savings potential:
Not only are these buildings located in many different countries, they also vary greatly in terms of type, sector and size. Initial Energy Grader data shows us that a huge range of organisations are keen to save energy, from small offices to huge factories and university campuses:
Occupants of historic buildings from before 1900 now know when and how can they be more energy efficient. Energy Grader can also help you understand whether your building really needs retrofitting, or if there are cheaper, simpler and faster ways to make your building more efficient.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Since Energy Grader is such a powerful tool to calculate energy efficiency, I have to be an energy expert in order to to use it, right?” Absolutely not!
Not only does Energy Grader take less than 3 minutes of your time, it can be done by anyone in your organisation! All you need to know is the size of the building that you want to grade and some basic information about its energy consumption.
In fact, more than a third of the people that grade their buildings have no background in energy whatsoever:
