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 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).

Performance Calculation – Shows the baseline period, intervals in the performance period, and the last day of complete data.

Total Savings – Shows percent savings, for the selected energy source and annualized savings if the achieved savings in the performance period was extrapolated to 365 days. If the selected performance period is one year, the achieved and annualized savings will be equal.

Graphs

  • Monthly Savings – Rolled-up absolute data
  • Monthly Percent Savings – % data with a black line as the goal line, if specified within the energy model
  • Expected vs Actual (Time Series)

Savings by Site – Comparative table with absolute and percent data by month

View Multiple Sites

If you have multiple facilities in Energy Sensei, use the SITE SELECTED dropdown to choose the sites to view. When viewing multiple sites, the performance page shows aggregate and comparative information across the sites selected.

Date Range – Defaults to include all selected sites’ performance periods. You can edit these dates to view another range.

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

Total Savings – Shows percent savings, achieved energy savings and annualized savings if the achieved savings in the performance period was extrapolated to 365 days. If the selected performance period is one year, the achieved and annualized savings will be equal.

Graphs

  • Monthly kWh Savings – Rolled-up absolute data
  • Sites Ranked by kWh Savings – Site-by-site comparison of absolute numbers
  • Monthly Percent Savings – Rolled-up percent data
  • Sites Ranked by Savings – Site-by-site comparison of percent savings

Savings by Site – Comparative table of site-level data by monthly percent and absolute numbers

Change Date Range

You can edit the Date Range to view savings calculations in a specific timeframe.
