Find the raw data of the energy consumption of city buildings

The Energy Efficient Buildings Hub, the federally-funded research initiative at the Navy Yard, launched a website last November that lets users see how much energy city-owned buildings use. This is the same data, except in raw format, so that developers can play with it.

The Energy Efficient Buildings Hub had an exhibit space at Greenbuild 2013, an international green buildings conference.

The City of Philadelphia released data about how much energy its buildings use.

The Energy Efficient Buildings Hub, the federally-funded research initiative at the Navy Yard, launched a website last November that lets users see how much energy city-owned buildings use. This is the same data, except in raw format, so that developers can play with it.

The city recently required large, privately-owned buildings to report their energy usage, and it plans to release a report about that next week, said Alex Dews of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.

It’s one benefit of having the EEB Hub in Philadelphia — that access to data collection — though the Navy Yard research effort has had its recent critics.
