IBS31: iHUB Smart Buildings Data Clearing House - Latest Developments (IBTech)

Accurate and detailed building data is needed to properly manage energy use and improve building operations and maintenance. However, access to such data is limited by a lack of open standards and trusted processes for the linking and sharing of diverse data sets. Opportunities from new IoT sensors and other value-add data streams for smart buildings need to be integrated to create truly smart buildings.

iHub aims to curate the Australian Smart Buildings Data Clearing House, a single location for accessing a wide range of linked building and energy data. It aims to increase the quality and value of data sets and empower Australian businesses to develop new smart building services such as data analytics, fault detection, predictive maintenance, demand response optimal control, energy dashboards, comfort visualisation and occupant experience applications.

This linked data, combined with value added services of iHub member companies will be used by building owners, property managers and service contractors to save energy, improve efficiencies, reduce costs and inform policy.

The presentation will include the latest developments in the AIRAH / CSIRO iHUB Smart Building Data Clearing House project and a live demonstration of real-world data ingestion and federation from multiple commercial buildings and systems (BIM, BMS, submetering, solar PV, Battery Storage, BOM weather data). Use of the latest building information schemas (BIM/IFC, BRICK and Haystack) will show how open data standards and linked data can be used to facilitate smart building services and applications.
