Description

One of the more useful chart overviews of Building or Organization's energy usage and trending is the Energy Use Intensity(EUI) chart located on the Normalized Data tab of any building  This chart provides a trend analysis for up to a ten-year span with monthly bar graph plots for all energy commodities associated with the selected node, as well as a monthly trend line expressing annualized use per unit area for the selected Place(s). Annualization helps minimize trend effects caused by missing bills. Each trend line data point represents the average of the prior 12 months.

For accounts with multiple years of data, it is possible to limit the data shown in the EUI chart to a different range of dates by using the date sliders that appear atop the chart.
