Method and apparatus for contextualizing energy consumption data

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #8577486.

Systems, methods, and other embodiments associated with contextualizing energy consumption are described. One example method includes accessing stored energy consumption data and stored operation status data from production-related equipment; correlating the operation status data with the energy consumption data; and categorizing energy consumed by the production-related equipment as value-added or non-value-added based, at least in part, on the correlating of the operation status data with the energy consumption data. The example methods may also include determining an energy classification for an energy-consuming entity; identifying child entities of the energy-consuming entity; accessing energy consumption data for the energy-consuming entity and the child entities; aggregating the energy consumption data for the energy-consuming entity and the child entities; and classifying the aggregated energy consumption data with the energy classification for the energy-consuming entity.
