RMV2.0 - LBNL M&V2.0 Tool
RMV2.0 is an open-source R package for performing advanced measurement and verification 2.0 (M&V 2.0)for Commercial Buildings. Aimed to run locally, the package provides algorithms and a graphical user interface (GUI) that is browser-based and the data analysis is fully contained within the user’s hardware (no data or results are uploaded to the internet). The intent of the package is to help M&V practitioners to perform with a high level of automation the following:
- Quickly and easily summarize and visualize smart meter data.
- Create energy consumption baseline models using advanced algorithms.
- Screen smart meter data for commercial customers to identify buildings that are well suited to the automated M&V approach; use this information to target future whole-building projects.
- Estimate savings.
- Identify potential non-routine events (NRE) in the post-installation period using statistical methodology.
