Green Deal or No Deal Part 3: Number Crunching

Bruno Girin

May 22, 2013

Following part 1 and part 2, I received the official assessment a while back. Here is a quick analysis of the content and subsequent research on my part.

Basic Numbers

The Green Deal assessment I received is a 5 page PDF document. The very first thing that it tells me is that my current situation could be worse:

So my household consumes less than the typical household. This is probably due to my habits rather than the building being energy efficient: I am out during the day, I tend to switch lights off when I'm not in a room and will put a fleece on when it's a bit chilly rather than switch on the heating. The side effect of this, as the rest of the document attests, is that my saving potential is lower than average.

Organisation Hierarchy

Any organisation of a certain size has a structure that is not flat. It is important for such organisations to be able to understand their energy data in a way that reflects their internal hierarchy so we added the ability for such customers to do just that.

Green Deal or No Deal - Part 2: Assessment & Recommendations

Bruno Girin

March 04, 2013

In the first installement of this series, I detailed what the Green Deal was about and how I went about arranging an assessment, which is the first step in getting anything done. I had the assessment last week so it's now time to report back on how it went.

Price and Output

As detailed in my previous post, it took five calls before I reached someone who really knew what I wanted and could organise an assessment. Or so I thought. The second company on my list did call me back eventually, at which point I had to tell them that because they had called me two weeks after I had sent a request, I had already booked with someone else.

Degree Days in EnergyDeck - An Introduction by Martin Bromley

Martin Bromley

February 26, 2013

EnergyDeck recently introduced degree days into their system. You may be wondering what they are and what they're for.

My name is Martin Bromley, and I'm from www.degreedays.net - a popular source of degree days for locations worldwide, and the source that EnergyDeck is using. I've got to know the EnergyDeck folks as they've been integrating with our system, and I was honoured when they asked me to write about degree days as a guest post on their blog.

Degree days are a specialist kind of weather data that is used to account for the effect of the weather on energy consumption.
