Event description:
The increasing availability of quality data provides significant opportunities for better and more efficient performance monitoring and optimisation of buildings by enabling better understanding and offering further insights on all aspects affecting (directly or indirectly) their operation through Data Analytics.

This event “BIG DATA AND AI TO TRANSFORM THE BUILDING SECTOR” aims at presenting some of these applications that use data in novel ways to advance the energy transition of the housing sector towards a more sustainable future. The demonstrations will highlight how data-based approaches and artificial intelligence can address several issues on buildings’ energy efficiency, such as monitoring and/or proposing energy efficiency refurbishments in the buildings sector and prioritising investment in buildings towards promoting sustainability, as well as streamlining.
