Virtual Energy Assessments

Remote or virtual energy assessments are an emerging technology that provides building owners with a greater understanding of their building’s energy use and operations using inputs from utility meters and computer modeling. Building owners are investigating the technology as an affordable alternative to more comprehensive walk-through energy audits, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and provide a level of complexity and detail unneeded by some owners. State and local governments are also interested in virtual energy audits as a tool for rating building performance or as a compliance option for energy reporting ordinances.
