I understand its on Googles end and they need to be notified, if broadly happening.
Sorry to hear about your missing energy history. I can understand the frustration behind losing that kind of data. I'm happy to look into this for you.
We're currently aware of an issue with the Nest thermostat Energy History. Affected customers will see a "No usage" message indicated, but tapping the day will show detailed usage. We're working on resolving this issue as quickly as possible, and truly appreciate your patience as we get this resolved.
Let us know if you have any other questions for us!

So what is the solution Google have come to for this???
As you can see from the following threads, there are a lot of angry Nest customers with this same issue who are STILL waiting for a resolution to this problem even having dealt with the Google "support" team:
The last thread even has one of your other "Community Specialists" stating back in 16 Nov 2021 that "it looks like we have come to a solution" and closed the thread......without actually detailing what the solution is in the thread. This is not acceptable.
Thanks for reaching and we're sorry for the delay.
I checked all the threads with this issue and thanks to @BobbyDazzler for sharing his idea on removing the thermostat from the account and re-add it using the code from the thermostat.
Let's give it a try and share your experiences here in the community.
Firstly, I did not share this idea, @kjdobcolorado did.
Secondly, you posted this message on the wrong thread - you should have posted it here:
Thirdly, as you can see from the link above, other users have stated that this solution did not work for them (including me) so Google STILL have not resolved this issue effectively.
Thanks for your reply.
Since we've migrated from the old community platform, we are doing our best to make it easier for our users to respond to their posts. Some threads will be merged as they are coming from the same person with the same inquiry.
With that, we appreciate your patience and support to the community.
With regards to the issue, I'll further check this with the team and I'll post an update here once it's available.
Wow! Incredible. No solutions. It seems the Nest app is at fault. I checked my Nest thermostat device and the history is there, when I click on it.
Why can't Google fix this issue with the app? This issue has stopped me from buying any other Google devices. I cannot believe their indifference toward this software issue. If they pay no mind to the little things, who says they will pay attention to the bigger ones. It's like a homeowner who doesn't maintain their home, it will fall apart.
I have already replied to this thread (see other comments from me). As stated in my previous reply, the history shows up ok if I look at the heating schedule, then go back to the history. I would like to be able to see more than just the last 10 days, though
I am also having this issue and there is ZERO evidence that a company the size of google can or are even trying to re-write the coding for the app!! There is clearly a bug in the system.
Please advise if you have any updates on this
I'm sorry for the delay. The issue happens because the Nest thermostat went through a non-orderly restart at some point that day. A non-orderly restart simply means the thermostat wasn’t restarted properly by selecting Settings > Reset > Restart in the thermostat interface.
Reasons this might happen include:
Another way to fix the missing energy history issue is by re-seatting the thermostat display on the base.
Our team is aware of this and working on a fix. As long as you shut down the thermostat in an orderly manner, shouldn't experience this.
I think you need to check ALL the threads (see my above post which lists them) that relate to this matter, as the issue is most definitely NOT resolved. There has been no viable solution offered and the issue has been ongoing for a significant period of time now, so to suggest in your post that a solution has been offered and that you will lock responses within 24 hours is actually quite insulting.
In terms of feedback - how about somebody in your organisation take ownership of this fault (which is clearly a software glitch in the hardware) and finally provide a solution to it (given that it is a common issue which is clearly being experienced by a number of users) - it should NOT be this difficult dealing with an organisations "support"
I think most people have seen the reply and for many the issue is not resolved. As I stated, I could get the History back by looking at the schedule. That works for me every time, but it may not work for everyone affected. There seems to be a minor bug, but it should be sorted before you close the thread
after a few days when it worked fine after the restart, it started again to show "no usage", in details again it displays no data or invalid data
Hi Jake, I am still having this issue, it is very annoying. I have one idea why it could be a problem. Maybe it is because I had another Nest thermostat in the past which is broken now. So, I bought another one, and maybe my account is still bounded to that old Nest? could it be possible? Maybe this is the reason why it constantly presents me invalid usage history.
however other functions work well, so it seems that the bug affects only the history page.
