Update EIA data processing module test classes that check for raw EIA data files with an additional decorator that looks for an environment variable 'EXPECT_EIA_FILES' set to 'true'. If the environment variable is missing or set to another value, the tests that depend on the raw EIA data files are skipped.

scout Travis-CI Build Status

The contents of this repository are all in-progress and should not be expected to be free of errors or to perform any specific functions. Use only with care and caution.

Scout is a software program that estimates the impacts of various energy conservation measures (ECMs) in the U.S. residential and commercial building sectors. Scout evaluates the energy savings, avoided CO2 emissions, operating cost reductions, and cost-effectiveness (using several metrics) of each ECM under multiple technology adoption scenarios. These results are obtained for the entire U.S., and also broken out by climate zone, building class (i.e., new/existing, residential/commercial), and end use.

Getting Started

Scout is currently a command line-based tool. Follow the Quick Start Guide to start using Scout on your computer.

Scout is free and open-source software and can be used by anyone, subject to the license terms.

Documentation

Documentation for Scout is available online. The documentation includes instructions for setting up a computer to run Scout, tutorials on how to use the components of Scout, a primer on the modeling approach, and reference materials for ECM definitions.

Baseline Energy Calculator

The Baseline Energy Calculator is a web-based tool that allows users to explore the Scout baseline data. Based on user selections, the calculator yields total baseline U.S. energy use and CO2 emissions for one or several market segments, which can help users evaluate the national impact potential for an ECM of interest.

Future Updates

You can track on-going development of Scout in this repository. If you find any errors in the model or opportunities for improvement, contribute to the issue tracker by commenting on an existing issue or submitting a new one.
