Understand Performance Overview

In this article:

Performance is the home to manage energy models and track savings. The Performance Overview is designed for energy teams, program delivery teams, and utility program managers.

How does Performance differ from Explore?

Performance provides at-a-glance savings information for one or more sites. This is best to quickly get a high-level understanding of how a site or cohort are performing, as well as communicating that performance to other stakeholders.

Explore is best for detailed analysis but provides fewer high-level insights out-of-the-box. You can make the most out of Explore by using its flexible and powerful functionality to explore specific questions you have of the data.

View Single Site

If you have a single site facility in Sensei, the Overview tab automatically displays the model performance calculation and graphed data for your site.

Single site Performance Overview

Date Range – Defaults to the pre-defined performance period (start date same as Explore CUSUM start, end date leave blank) for the most recent, active or provisional model. You can edit these dates to view another range.

Energy Source – If you have multiple energy sources, a dropdown field allows you to select Electricity (kWh) or Natural Gas (Therm).

Savings Type – Toggle between All (expected energy use minus actual energy use) and Program Only savings (excludes separate claims which are added and edited on the Adjustments tab of the active model). Visit the View Model Detail article for more details about Adjustments.
