Big Data for Energy Efficiency: Visualize the Invisible
This interactive presentation will demonstrate how to see what a building has to say using big data - how to access and translate that data into actionable information through analytics with outputs that help visualize performance and opportunities. It will feature the analysis of three real-world examples in very different climate zones (Texas, Washington D.C., and Minneapolis), identify energy conservation measures recommended or discerned from the analysis and the expectations of impact to examine how the methods might be applied to audience members' situations.
1. Define how/why to access interval utility data for analysis including smart metering
2. Review what can be learned from interval utility data including using the information to make better building services decisions
3. Understand how these tools and techniques were used in three buildings across very different climate conditions
4. List steps attendees can follow to undertake similar efforts at their own facilities
