Monitoring and targeting is routine analysis of energy consumption, usually undertaken to detect and diagnose the hidden avoidable energy waste which occurs randomly in any enterprise because of unexpected faults, maloperation, maintenance errors and the like. It is something that every diligent energy manager should be doing and something that I've been training people on and supporting them with for many years. Towards the end of 2020 I decided to repackage some key advice as a series of short articles in  my weekly Energy Management Register bulletin, literally 26 snippets going through the alphabet A to Z...

A IS FOR AVOIDABLE WASTE

B IS FOR BASELINE

C IS FOR ‘CUSUM’

D IS FOR DRIVING FACTOR

E IS FOR ‘EXPECTED CONSUMPTION’

F IS FOR FREQUENCY OF ASSESSMENT

G IS FOR GRADIENT 

H IS FOR HEATMAP

I IS FOR INTERCEPT

J IS FOR JUSTIFYING EXTRA METERS

K IS FOR KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

L IS FOR LIMITS OF DEVIATION FROM EXPECTED CONSUMPTION

M IS FOR MODELLING

O IS FOR OVERSPEND LEAGUE TABLE

P IS FOR PERFORMANCE DEFICIT

Q IS FOR QUIESCENT THRESHOLD

R IS FOR REGRESSION

S IS FOR STANDARD DEVIATION

T IS FOR TARGETS

U IS FOR UNCERTAINTY

V IS FOR VERIFICATION OF ENERGY SAVINGS

W IS FOR WEATHER

X IS FOR XSDETECT

Y IS FOR YEAR-TO-DATE AND YEAR-ON-YEAR

Z IS FOR ZERO
