Software Tools

The DOE Advanced Manufacturing Office provides a variety of energy system and energy management software tools to help industrial partners increase energy efficiency at both the plant-level and in specific energy systems. These free and open-source tools and calculators can help identify savings opportunities, monitor progress, and identify potential improvements in your facility. Explore the various software tools below, and check out the Software Tools Info Card as a quick reference for featured resources. 

Featured Software Tool

VERIFI (beta) is a utility dashboarding tool that enables partners to monitor, track, and improve their understanding of energy, water, waste, and GHG emission patterns. The tool allows users to quickly explore and analyze their utility data at both the facility and corporate levels. VERIFI replaces DOE’s EnPI tool for performing advanced regression-based analysis for tracking consumption and includes the ability to generate visualizations and reports automatically.

VERIFI is free to use, does not require signing up for an account, and stores all data directly on users' computers. The tool was developed using an open-source framework compatible with Windows and macOS operating systems (download VERIFI here or explore the online version). Partners are encouraged to use their own data to test VERIFI’s new Beta release, explore its capabilities, and provide feedback. Any bugs or suggested improvements should be submitted to Kristina Armstrong.

 

MEASUR is a software suite that allows end-users (such as energy engineers or facility personnel) to create a model using facility data which will optimize and improve the industrial systems for facilities. Using plant-specific operating data, MEASUR helps energy managers assess how much energy each piece of equipment uses annually, plus the estimated annual energy costs.

This open-source software is continually adding new calculators to the suite and can analyze most major energy support systems found within industrial plants, including compressed air, fans, process heat, pumps, and more. Through the various system modeling modules and 70+ equipment calculators, users can analyze and quantify energy savings.
