|Abstract: ||The ability to analyse and accurately forecast future events is becoming
increasingly important as most management decisions depend on them. This is
especially evident for the retail sector, mainly because of the small margins
that the sector is working within, alongside the increasing prices of electricity
and gas. Tesco, as the market leader, wishes to be at the forefront of research
and make a step change in their ability to forecast and reduce the energy
consumption of their buildings.
This work presents the various benchmarking methods available in the UK,
Europe and the US, including CIBSE TM46, ISA, and ASHRAE benchmarks.
The mathematical techniques employed to access the predictions obtained
using these benchmarking and forecasting methods are discussed as well as
the analysis and forecasting methods used by the industry. The research reported throughout this paper uses energy data obtained from
the Tesco estate to draw correlations with weather, sales’ floor area, sales and
other factors that might affect the energy consumption. Initial results regarding
the effect these factors have on the energy consumption of buildings in the
Tesco estate are presented.|
