Proving the Business Case for Building Analytics: Results from the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign

The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign (2016-2020) was a public/private-sector partnership program focused on supporting commercially available Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) and monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) practices for commercial buildings. The campaign supported 104 organizations with 6,500 buildings covering over half a billion square feet of combined floor area; they documented median annual energy savings of 3% for energy information systems and 9% for fault detection and diagnostics. The campaign also produced the largest known dataset on EMIS costs and benefits, which showed a 2-year simple payback on EMIS projects.
