Budget forecasts

Gridium uses historical data from your buildings to forecast future energy use and costs. However, the past isn’t a perfect guide to the future. You can use the Gridium budget forecast as is, without further modification, or you can treat it as a starting point onto which you can layer further planning assumptions. This guide will help you understand the forecast and make any desired updates.

Lighting is no longer about the lumens

Open protocol systems connecting all hardware to your building IoT will bring analytics everywhere and changes to every dimension of building operations.

Four principles for a winning work order

Work orders for buildings have to balance information with burdening building occupants. Experts from Gridium discuss the four critical aspects of work orders.

Special programs

Demand response and other incentive programs can be confusingly complex, but done right they can yield handsome returns with minimal risk.

Weather normalization

Weather drives day-to-day variation in energy use that obscures underlying trends. Statistical analysis can help you pull a signal from the noise.

Time-of-use rates

Utilities vary prices by time of day and season to encourage buildings to reduce energy use during peak grid load. If you’re not winning the energy efficiency game, you’re losing.
