Ecova, a total energy and sustainability management company, today released its second annual Big Data Look at Energy Trends: 2008-2012 report. The report draws from Ecova’s Big Data Warehouse, which contains over 2.5 billion points of data from more than 700,000 facilities. This year’s analysis, specifically pulled from 150,000 facilities, shows a decrease in total electric consumption intensity of 8.8 percent and a 6 percent decrease in peak demand. From a vertical view, many retail organizations (including Medium Box Retail, Small Box Retail, and Mercantile Malls) have slashed more than 12 percent of consumption from their portfolios since 2008.
