Evaluating Building Performance of Single-Family Homes in SMUD’s Service Territory
Clean Power Research has developed the Virtual Energy Audit (VEA) to address some of the building electrification challenges that consumers and utilities will encounter. The VEA provides a process to rapidly calculate building shell efficiency for large numbers of customers while identifying changes to equipment and the building shell. This gives utility efficiency program managers with tools to validate improvements and quantify their effectiveness. In this case study, Clean Power Research® performed a Virtual Energy Audit for nearly 350,000 single-family residential homes in SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) territory.
