Unformatted text preview: followup analysis or investigation in terms of determining causal impact was
performed that incorporated this data. This is a major example of why installing metering alone
is not a panacea for improving energy efficiency, and why it is imperative that workable business
processes and structure are developed to utilize the meter data effectively.
There was also evidence that Energy Champions and others used various other techniques (described below with the exception of use of the AEMC power meter) to periodically measure energy
use of select equipment during previous improvement projects. However, data collection was done on
an ad-hoc and unstructured basis, and not stored in any central location accessible by team-members
or the Raytheon community. The net result of the historical data collection approaches was a general lack of understanding (on
