One of the consequences of social distancing due to COVID - 19 has been a proliferation of virtual energy audits. Such audits rely on a combination of interval data from electric meters and phone or online surveys to produce Energy Efficient Measures (EEMs) for a given facility. Proponents of such audits point to recent developments in “big data” analytics techniques to make a case for “robust analysis” using interval figures from smart meters. Smart meters typically produce 35,000 data points in a single year.
