Today’s blog is a promotion for an upcoming live event webinar featuring EnergyCAP’s CEO Steve Heinz and Lou Seidel, Director of Business Development for AccuWeather.
The webinar, sponsored by Energy Manager Today, is titled How AccuWeather Data Provides Value to Energy Managers, and will be held at 2:00 PM ET on Wednesday, March 9 (just one week from now).
Most of us are familiar with AccuWeather, a worldwide leader in weather forecasts and data. AccuWeather serves hundreds of millions of people daily via television, radio, newspapers, websites and mobile devices.
This webinar will provide an interesting behind-the-scenes tour of the processes that AccuWeather meteorologists use to acquire and validate weather data. But raw weather data isn’t useful to energy managers without a platform, so five value streams – including budgeting, normalizations and M&V (measurement and verification) – will be illustrated using EnergyCAP utility bill management software and WeatherDataDepot.com.
