Project Update

Brendle Group has completed the initial data collection and a large portion of preliminary building area statistical analysis for participating utilities. Work over the last 6 months has focused on developing and implementing a methodology for outlier analysis and developing preliminary rate-of-use metrics. As the research transitions into verifying and refining these rate-of-use metrics, the research team has also worked with one utility to collect normalization factor data outside of building areas for use in metric development. The research team has also formulated several questions related to both the data and the practical implementation of research findings that it will be exploring in the next phase of work.
