Building Energy Data Analysis

Building Energy Data Analysis

While a massive amount of building-related energy data exists, it can be unwieldy and dispersed, hampering our ability to leverage it for energy-saving efforts and research. Building owners, utilities, cities, ESCOs, and researchers are unable to match energy use data with other building data sets, making it hard to identify opportunities to save energy or advance the development of new energy-efficient technologies. This Accelerator will focus on the development and testing of a unique building identifier (UBID) that enables spatial tagging to reduce the barriers to and cost of joining datasets. This will improve how building energy data can be used for research and cost-effective investment decisions, leading to stronger, more competitive energy infrastructure and systems.

Partnership Agreement

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Energy Data Analysis (BEDA) Accelerator is a voluntary partnership that brings together public and private sector leaders, researchers, utilities, and others to improve the way that building energy data is generated, managed, merged, and analyzed through the development of a unique building identifier (UBID). BEDA Accelerator Partners will collaborate with DOE and national labs to demonstrate successful models of enhancing dataset connectivity and furthering energy efficiency research and insights.
