About Us
Energy Dashboard is a project of the MESL Lab at UCSD. The goal of this project is to measure and record fine-grained energy usage data across the entire campus, from the both a top-down (campus meters) and a bottom-up (individual meters) perspective. We hope to characterize and study energy usage and how different plans for energy conservation vary in their effectiveness.
