NOTE 2 Energy can be defined as the capacity of a system to produce external activity or perform work. 3.6
quantitative reference(s) providing a basis for comparison of energy performance
NOTE 1 An energy baseline reflects a specified period of time. NOTE 2
An energy baseline can be normalized using variables which affect energy use and/or consumption,
e.g. production level, degree days (outdoor temperature), etc.
The energy baseline is also used for calculation of energy savings, as a reference before and after
implementation of energy performance improvement actions. 3.7
quantity of energy applied
ratio or other quantitative relationship between an output of performance, service, goods or energy, and an
input of energy
Conversion efficiency; energy required/energy used; output/input; theoretical energy used to
operate/energy used to operate.
NOTE Both input and output need to be clearly specified in quantity and quality, and be measurable. 3.9
energy management system
