February 9, 2011 – Dimax Introduces a New Standard in Dynamic Dashboards
Forbes Silverthorne, Vice President of Operations of Dimax Building Performance today introduced our new "Report Card" dashboard for dynamic presentation of Utility Performance. "Our new dashboard produces a base-line budget through regression and normalization of historical performance data and producing an hour-by-hour output utility use forecast based on a representative weather-year for the particular geographic location. It then compares this forecast with current utility usage, normalizing the forecast to the actual weather to which it is being compared. The dashboard simultaneously presents the cumulative sum of the energy reduction on a continuous, real-time basis."
Former methods of comparison have largely relied on the "degree-day" method of normalizing utility data for weather. This new process developed by Dimax significantly improves upon this method and it can handle up to 5 independent variables. This allows the base-line budget to take into account such variables as occupancy and usage in combination with weather.
