This project will develop a prototype software tool that leverages existing data sources in buildings in innovative ways to provide actionable information to facility and energy managers on how to significantly reduce energy consumption.
This tool will generate action-oriented Knowledge Performance Indicators (KPIs) from these emerging data sources by employing advanced data mining and visualization techniques.
The project will also assist facility and energy managers to continuously monitor the performance of buildings, identify energy intensive anomalies, and guide ongoing commissioning of building control and energy systems.
The project expects to generate uptake of this tool through existing control system manufacturers, which will benefit the buildings industry and Canadians.
Estimated GHG reduction in commercial and institutional buildings of up to 30%.
