This project tests whether more granular usage data provided in real time can result in deeper energy savings for virtual commissioning projects.


ComEd’s Virtual Commissioning (VCx) offer remotely identifies and verifies operational improvements for commercial and public sector customers using 30-minute near-real-time Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) usage data. In the first phase of this project, ComEd partnered with Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to investigate if the addition of one-minute AMI data provided in real time would allow identification of deeper energy savings and broaden the range of buildings on which VCx can be performed. Site selection was conducted to capture locations with a wide range of characteristics to yield results applicable to many other commercial and public sector customers. While evaluation for the original installations is ongoing, additional installations in CPS along with new sites at other school districts and some businesses have been added to the project.
