A Maturing Market
for Analytics
HIGHLIGHTS:



Smart Energy Analytics Campaign data reinforces
and enhances prior research on EMIS benefits
EIS and FDD offer complementary capabilities when
deployed in parallel
Organizations with FDD achieved greater savings
than EIS but at a greater cost; overall both EIS and
FDD showed a two-year simple payback
here is a growing national trend in the use
of analytics in commercial buildings. EIS are
becoming common for portfolio owners that
want to track energy use centrally and prioritize
energy efficiency efforts, and FDD is gaining traction
as it helps facility teams track the performance of
systems. These research conclusions were drawn
from a dataset of 104 participants that were involved
in the DOE’s Smart Energy Analytics Campaign
over the course of four years, covering more than
567 million sq ft of

These savings are not attributable to specific
measures, however the EMIS users shared the
measures they most often implemented, including
improvements to HVAC scheduling, adjustment of
setpoints, reducing simultaneous heating and cooling,
and improving airside economizer operation.
While organizations with FDD achieved greater
savings than EIS, FDD was more expensive to
implement, and most often used in larger buildings.
