The audit dataset facilitates the transfer of energy audit data and a proposed workscope from energy modeling or data collection tools to a program administer.
The audit dataset is designed for use by Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® or other whole house programs that require auditors to submit energy audit results and a proposed work scope to the program for review.
The dataset describes the baseline building with a proposed work scope. Required fields include data on the home's existing characteristics, health and safety needs, recommended improvements and savings predictions.
The audit dataset was established through a consensus process of three geographically diverse existing whole-house programs, and is intended to meet the needs of most programs.
Programs that wish to adopt the audit dataset, may download the Data Selection Tool for guidance on the required data fields.
Software developers may visit the GitHub repository for an example of an HPXML audit file.
