Data Mining & Analysis

To methodically and comprehensively assess energy consumption, Graphet Data Mining uses its innovative, data-driven, metrics-based, industry “type and size” comparative analysis toolset to support decision-making on energy. The toolset uncovers usage patterns and profiles, and helps you identify critical events in your facility. This information enables you to develop metrics and key indicators to predict and track energy usage, and to ultimately establish achievable results.

Metrics Analysis

    We help you develop both qualitative process metrics and quantitative energy metrics to achieve sustainable energy conservation. Our metrics approach achieves the following:

    • Calibrated baselines
    • Proactive indicators and motivators for success
    • Relevant and targeted metrics
    • Measured and sustainable processes
    • Effective report, feedback and control systems

    This Case Study shows that energy cost reduction can be achieved through one of three means–alternative energy sources, reduction in utility cost structures and efficiency of energy usage. Of these, only the third alternative is energy conservation. Improving energy efficiency can often be the most cost-effective and reliable option, if implemented correctly.

    Our Case Study defines a fact-based approach to planning, achieving and tracking energy conservation initiatives with the use of best available meaningful metrics. The approach starts with investigating the key metrics for energy conservation by gathering data on the volume and weather indicators that impact utility usage. Dependency analyses among these variables can result in useful insights for managing efficiencies and tracking progress on energy efficiency targets.

Project Justification

    Once the non-capital measures and/or “low-hanging fruit” are achieved, we help plants define, justify and implement projects to get results. Demand side initiatives to conserve energy must be implemented without compromising quality, service reliability or throughput. Our services facilitate:

    • Buy-in from key stakeholders on the metrics impacting energy
    • Presentation of capital funding requests to management
    • Optimal level of management attention on key energy issues
    • Focus on delivering the appropriate return on resources invested
    • Accountability for results
