EEmeter: tools for calculating metered energy savings

EEmeter — open source implementations of standard methods for calculating metered energy savings.

The eemeter contains the reference implementation of the CalTRACK methods for computing metered energy usage differences at sites with building efficiency interventions or at control sites without known interventions.


EEmeter is a python package and can be installed with pip.

$ pip install eemeter


If you are having trouble installing, see Using with Anaconda.

Command-line Usage

Once installed, eemeter can be run from the command-line. To see all available commands, run eemeter --help.

Use CalTRACK methods on sample data:

$ eemeter caltrack --sample=il-electricity-cdd-hdd-daily

Save output:

$ eemeter caltrack --sample=il-electricity-cdd-only-billing_monthly --output-file=/path/to/output.json

Load custom data (see eemeter.meter_data_from_csv and eemeter.temperature_data_from_csv for formatting):

$ eemeter caltrack --meter-file=/path/to/meter/data.csv --temperature-file=/path/to/temperature/data.csv

Do not fit CDD-based candidate models (intended for gas data):

$ eemeter caltrack --sample=il-gas-hdd-only-billing_bimonthly --no-fit-cdd
