Regional Data Resources

NEEA conducts regional studies primarily represented by the large building stock assessments in residential, commercial, and industrial segments.

In 2016-2019, we are coordinating building stock assessments in the residential and commercial sectors and anticipate
an industrial facility assessment during the 2020-2024 business cycle.

Compiled here, these stock assessments make available critical and timely data and tools that can help inform your energy efficiency and related research projects.

The RBSA is designed to develop a characterization of the residential sector that considers the diverse climates, building practices and fuel choices across the region. This study informs future energy planning efforts as well as energy efficiency utility programs and rebates offered by the region's utilities, the Energy Trust of Oregon and the Bonneville Power Administration. The most recent RSBA was in 2011-2012, and participants for the upcoming RSBA are currently being contacted – view more details here.

RBSA Metering Data

RBSA metering data is comprised of end-use loads measured at 15-minute intervals over 27 consecutive months. The participants are a subset of the full RBSA Single-family Report. The “RBSA End Use Load Shape Data” file and the “RBSA End Use Load Shape Flags Data” file are two supplemental files for the main dataset. The Flag file provides a set of flags as to what homes were included in the main report. RBSA Metering and Load Shape Flags Information and the RBSA Data Dictionary are included to further explain the data.

The CBSA is a periodic regional study that provides a database of commercial building information for the Northwest. It’s expected to be representative of the region's existing commercial building stock. The CBSA database includes more than 250 variables for each site, including building type and functional use, building size, detailed information about building envelope, fenestration, lighting, and HVAC equipment. NEEA leads the CBSA project in partnership with stakeholder work groups that provide technical expertise and project guidance on sample design, building data variables, and customer outreach. For more information on participating in the CBSA, read our Fact Sheet (in development) You may also view a webinar discussing 2014 CBSA results.

Note: 2001 CBSA information is available up on request, by contacting info@neea.org.

In 2014, NEEA released the first region-wide study of energy use characteristics of industrial facilities in the Northwest. The region’s utilities and power planning organizations can use these results to identify program opportunities and for energy-use planning. In addition, the region’s industrial concerns will be able to use summary level results to compare themselves with their peers on a wide range of energy use indicators.

Note: due to the relatively small sample size achieved, please use caution interpreting these results. No raw data (anonymized or otherwise) associated with this study will be released publicly.
