Metering Plan: Monitoring Energy and Potable Water Use in PNNL EMS4 Buildings

The PNNL Metering Program operates within the Sustainability M&O Program and collects data, provides analysis, and makes recommendations in support of two of these deliverables: the SSP and the F&O Business Plan. This 2012 edition of the annual Metering Plan conveys the vision of the recently reorganized PNNL Metering Program. It will present our progress toward the metering goals shared by all national laboratories and discuss PNNL's contemporary approach to the installation of new meters. Perhaps most importantly, this Plan discusses the data analysis techniques with which PNNL is working to mature using the endless streams of data newly available as a result of increased meter deployment over the last several years. Previous PNNL Metering Plans (Olson 2007; Olson, Berman, and Schielke 2008, 2009, and 2010; Pope et al. 2011) have documented specific meter connection schemes as the Laboratory focused on deploying meters in a first step towards managing energy use. This year's Plan serves not only as a report on how far PNNL has come, but also as the beginning of a guideline on meter installation and data analysis that we intend to develop over time.
