To navigate to the Energy Analytics dashboard, select the first icon on the top of the screen as shown in the image below and then select the Energy Analytics from the dropdown menu.
The Energy Analytics Dashboard allows users to examine their energy use further by drilling down into the half hourly and daily data.
How to use the Energy Analytics Dashboard
The top chart “Linear Energy Consumption Trend” shows energy consumption in one continuous line within the date range selected.
The bottom chart “Year on Year Energy Consumption Comparison” compares the same data year against year providing the ability to compare energy performance for year and year and even day against day. By default only the last two calendar years are shown.
Follow the simple steps to view the energy usage of your organisations activities:
Step 1: Energy consumption is shown below in the first figure across all relevant activities. You can filter on the type of fuel (item A) or energy source (item B) using the filters on the left hand side.
Step 2: By clicking on the "View Meter Data" button (item C) an organisation can also drill down into half hour meter data on both charts.
Note: To view half hour meter data you must first reduce your zoom range (item D below) to 3 months or less.
Step 3: Both charts can be broken down by division or geographic location by simply clicking on each one in the tree view as shown below by item E.
Step 4: The date can be modified in the "Date Period" selector (item F above) in the top right hand corner.
Step 5: To show more calendar years on the Year on Year Energy Consumption Comparison chart, click on the legend (item G below) on the right hand side of the chart below and choose the calendar years.
Step 6: Individual data points can be viewed throughout the chart by moving your mouse over the graphs as demonstrated below by item H.
Step 7: Half hourly meter data can also be shown by simply using the scroll bar on the bottom (item I), and click on the legend (item G) on the side to choose which year(s), Month(s), week(s), day(s) data that you wish to view.
Step 8: Energy charts can be exported to raster or vector image, or printed by clicking the items to the top right of the charts (as shown below in item J).
