EEme - Implementer

EEme's Implementer platform is designed to empower energy efficiency (EE) program implementers, e.g., electric utilities or 3rd party providers, to be more targeted in their EE outreach and marketing programs. EEme processes Greenbutton interval data using proprietary algorithms to predict the EE potential by EE measure for every user in a given service territory. In turn, these predictive EE metrics are displayed on ...more »

Home Energy Hunt

Looking for a place to buy or rent is a difficult task. There are many things to take into account, location, rent, and neighborhood to note a few. The one thing that is missing in this list tho is the cost of energy. Energy costs represent a significant monthly expense that few people take into account when calculating whether or not they can afford a given place. Home Energy Hunt was created out of a need to add energy ...more »

Enabling Distributed Generation with Open Grid Data

Distributed renewable energy generation—particularly solar PV—has grown dramatically in the last few years, but developers continue to be obstructed by soft costs and implementation barriers. The federal government is already working to address this problem through DOE’s Sunshot Initiative—partially by encouraging utilities and local governments to streamline their solar permitting and approval processes—but there is ...more »

Creating a Totally Sustainable Renewable Energy Source

For three years I have been experimenting on creating a totally, sustainable, renewable energy source that reduces the extraction on initial energy, is more cost efficient than traditional energy sources, and uses completely renewable energy sources. I had two trials. For my first trial I was testing the average voltage produced by a wind turbine (scale model) by testing the curvature, type and pitch of the blades and ...more »

Predicting Potential for Residential Energy Efficiency Retrofit

The dataset I dream for is a representative sample of residential monthly energy billing data, ideally for both gas and electric, by climate zone for the United States. This dataset would ideally include 3-5 years of monthly data for a subsample of homes in each of the Department of Energy’s 8 defined defined climate zones and the “marine, dry, moist” subdivisions thereof. Ideally, this subsample would include 250,000-500,000 ...more »

Thinking of Embodied Energy as a new form of currency

When we take out a loan for a house the most important thing we care about is the total cost and how fast can we pay that back. However, when it comes to things around us people seem to be completely unaware of how much energy it costs to make it. Embodied energy is defined as sum of all the energy required to produce goods or services. The concept can be useful in determining the effectiveness of energy producing/saving ...more »

Power Up

Turn dumb devices in your household into smart ones. Find out which ones suck the most. The app utilizes the real time residential idea from The first round of the apps for energy challenge. By registering your devices through the app, we can track the devices' power signature and determine whether the device is on or off. This opens up a new world of possibilities. You could, for example, have an app warn you when ...more »

Energy Analyst

Energy Analyst is a web application designed to analyze the energy efficiency of a variety of common home and building characteristics. It does this by showing the energy consumption of two different building profiles. For example, a comparison between 2 different heating technologies, radiator vs. heat pump can be run to see the difference in energy consumption across a sampling of over 1500 homes in the United States. ...more »
