A Datapalooza for Measured Building Performance: The DOE Buildings Performance Database

November 4, 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

The DOE Buildings Performance Database allows users to access building energy performance data and perform statistical analyses on an anonymous dataset of over 70,000 commercial and residential buildings from across the country. It contains real-world, building-specific data, such as a building's age and use, as well as electricity and fuel consumption, equipment information and operational characteristics. The data can be used for a variety of purposes such as identifying trends in the performance of groups of similar buildings, identifying and prioritizing energy efficiency improvements, and forecasting estimated energy savings. Since its launch in March 2013, the BPD has over 6000 users.

This seminar will describe the motivation, technical approach and key features of the BPD, including a demo of the tool. It will also provide an opportunity to share war stories on data collection and cleansing, and broadly discuss the potential and limitations of "big data" for energy-related decision-making
