City-Wide Building Data Analytics: Energy and Air Quality

This project has demonstrated the "City-Wide Building Data Analytics" platform at five City of Pittsburgh buildings to help reduce building energy consumption while ensuring better air quality for building occupants. The platform supports data driven policy-making, building portfolio energy and indoor environmental quality (IEQ) optimization, and building occupants’ engagement in energy conservation. The team has deployed Speck air quality sensors in five City buildings, has collected data, and provided a dashboard for decision makers to use in assessing their building energy use and air quality.

STATUS: The team has launched a public website where citizens can see the research first-hand.
