Visualizing energy use in non-residential building

Many owners of non-residential buildings have expressed a need for better ways to engage their tenants and to create incentives for them to reduce their share of the building's energy use.

By visualizing the energy use to the tenants, their understanding of their share of the building energy use will increase. The aim is that the understanding will lead to smarter, more efficient use of energy with reduced energy
consumption. This project aims to develop a tool for such a visualization.

The main goal of this project is to provide knowledge, support and practical demonstration to the local property
owner in how they should think when they communicate energy with their tenants
