Why is my bill so high?

In most parts of the country, heating and cooling drives energy demand. Many companies are looking to explore the relationship between energy and weather and provide homeowners with actionable insights into understanding and controlling their utility spending. One area of focus is developing software applications that correlate energy use patterns measured by smart meters with easily obtained outside temperature observations. ...more »

A Real Time Residential Energy Dataset - "Wish List Dataset"

Wish List Dataset: A Real Time Residential Energy Dataset U.S Energy Information Administration, we have a wish. Could you make the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS) real time? Sounds impossible? A daunting task? It's not! Over open API's (format agnostic) you could drive change in the industry. Allow utilities to rethink the customers homes. Gain actionable insight that is already available but not being ...more »

Leveraging Natural Gas Data

Improving the Green Button Initiative: The Green Button Initiative has made great strides in making electricity consumption more transparent, but consumption of natural gas is a blind spot. As a result, end-use natural gas data should be incorporated into the Green Button program to provide a clearer perspective on energy use. This strategy would leverage and complement existing Green Button data and ultimately provide ...more »

Voluntary Submission of Greenbutton Data

We propose creation of a publically available greenbutton data set by allowing utility customers to voluntarily upload relevant data along with key parameters related to building(home or business). The data set would include five relational databases as follows. 1) building description – a) location [zip code and or census tract]; b) year constructed; c) size; d) number of stories; e) structure type [wood frame, structural ...more »

Predicting Potential for Residential Energy Efficiency Retrofit

The dataset I dream for is a representative sample of residential monthly energy billing data, ideally for both gas and electric, by climate zone for the United States. This dataset would ideally include 3-5 years of monthly data for a subsample of homes in each of the Department of Energy’s 8 defined defined climate zones and the “marine, dry, moist” subdivisions thereof. Ideally, this subsample would include 250,000-500,000 ...more »

Standardize all energy data with US Census Boundaries

I propose that all datasets that are released from any governmental organization should be standardized in such a way such that they are easily relatable to the units of measurement that the US Census uses (preferably, counties, tracts, block-groups and blocks). At the moment, data provided by the Federal Government is near impossible to relate to small spatial units (for example a block-group contains ~1000s of people). ...more »

Comprehensive Data on Wind Farm Production By Site

Our dream dataset: open data on the actual realized performance of all wind farms in the US, and/or any data it holds on actual measured wind resources at different sites, in any format the DOE chooses. We believe this data could be captured from Treasury/DOE records on production tax credit reporting, which were required of all US wind farms over the past few years. With this data, the wind industry in general, and ...more »

Better Green Button Data Accessibility

Currently access to Green Button data is very restrictive which limits its intended benefits and consumer market penetration. 1. LIMITATION: - The user has to login to their utility company's website with their account login to access the Green Button data. This limits any automated solution by 3rd party providers which is required for real world applications. Otherwise, in almost all cases, the solution fails since ...more »

Energy Conscious Datasets

We need to bring awareness so that our employees, home owners, students, as citizen and our work force in commercial and industrial sector is Energy Conscious. Energy usage and cost equation should become our second nature. At a high level, we need to associate kWh, kW demand for the light fixtures, appliances, commercial and industrial equipment i.e. Compressors, Chillers etc. EnergyStar website already has very valuable ...more »

Open Solar Radiation - Wish List Data Set

Greetings Earthlings - Edison figured it out over a 100 years ago. Localize supply at demand. You are finally going back to the future. You are building solar panels across your planet. But you have missed a network. A network of solar radiation sensors. Build this network to understand the expected generation of solar panels. Then open this data. Share this data with developers. The developers will uncover spectacular ...more »

Server room rack energy modeling tool

Mid size server rooms need open source tools to evaluate rack components for energy efficiency. Cornell has proposed using wireless antennae to replace fiber and ether connections. http://www.cs.cornell.edu/~jyshin/papers/ancs2012_shin.pdf This could save energy but may complicate rack design and security. Vendors have promoted Converged Network Adapters (CNA) and supporting switches to save energy. CNAs complicate rack ...more »
