Accurate and detailed building data is needed to properly manage energy use and improve building operations. But access to such data is limited by a lack of open standards and trusted processes for the sharing of diverse data sets. Opportunities, from new Internet-of-Things sensors and data streams, also need to be explored.
i-Hub aims to curate the Australian Smart Buildings Data Clearing House, a single location for accessing a wide range of energy and building data. It aims to increase the quality and value of data sets, and empower Australian businesses to develop new data analytics services.
This data, combined with the services of i-Hub member companies, will be used by building owners and property managers to save energy, improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
Data will also provide evidence to assist in decision making and inform policy.
