What Does Energy Waste Look Like? 

Looking for Waste

In an energy efficient building, electricity use at night and on weekends should drop. This graph shows the electricity dropping during the weekend, as well as dipping on a daily basis during the night.

When electricity demand remains high over the weekend and/or weeknights, we consider this abnormal and an energy waste. The graph above indicates potential energy waste worthy of investigation.

Check Your Electricity Data!

Find your building on the Campus Energy Education Dashboard (CEED) using the map or the building search, and check out the electricity demand data. Not sure how to use the demand graphs on the energy dashboard? Watch Dan explain what to look for in his video on building demand trends.
