The SIMS also provides robust evaluation of efficiency and conservation programs' performance, based on nationally recognized evaluation protocols. The SIMS platform has been designed to allow the integration of multiple data sets in different file formats so that weather normalized consumption data can be readily linked with other program tracking information (which customers have participated and what they've done).
Numerous insights can then be gleaned through the SIMS, to help inform future program design and implementation:
Who's saving and, not saving, the most in my programs?
How can my program improve?
