Energy Data

Data points showing how much energy is being consumed in a given place at a certain time. These might be collected on an interval basis or in real-time.

Why It Matters

Energy data is either collected in intervals, which can range from once a month (utility bills) to once every fifteen minutes (such as Green Button data), or in real-time. Real-time energy data is collected every few seconds and is sent to a cloud-based energy management software immediately. The data can help building managers and engineers identify potential scheduling changes that will cause the building to consume less. Irregular spikes in energy data can also let building operators know when there is a problem in the building. However, in order for energy data to be actionable, it needs to be sent to a cloud-based platform where it can be displayed graphically for key stakeholders to see.
