The Buildings Performance Database: The Power of Data Webinar
Date: Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Time: 4:00-5:00 PM EDT
Presenter: U.S. Department of Energy’s Buildings Technology Office
Overview: The Buildings Performance Database (BPD) is the largest free, publicly available database of residential and commercial building energy performance information in the country. Please join us for a webinar about how the BPD can help you:
- • Analyze information about real buildings' location; age; size; function; electricity and fuel consumption; equipment information and operational characteristics
- • Discover opportunities for improvement by examining groups of similar buildings
- • Forecast project performance and risk using statistical analysis
With more than 1,500 users since the launch in June, the BPD provides access to an anonymous dataset of over 60,000 single-family, multifamily, commercial and public buildings from across the country. The DOE is continually looking for data contributions, and new datasets are being added regularly. We are offering three webinar dates that will all include the same content: an overview of the BPD’s goals and design principles, a live demo of the tool, information on how to contribute data, and a question and answer session.
Target Audience: Building owners and managers, contractors and service providers, public agencies and energy efficiency program administrators.
