The volume of data relating to the built environment is expected to markedly increase as low cost, wireless monitoring devices proliferate. It is anticipated that the technology will provide facilities managers with new tools for cost-effective energy use reduction. To address this opportunity, several projects worldwide are developing data platforms possessing integrated analytics corresponding to distinct energy-related services (hereinafter referred to as ‘e-services’). This paper summarises the first year activity of a Korean project addressing the delivery of new information services relating to the energy and environmental performance of buildings. An e-service delivery platform based on pervasive sensors and the Hadoop ‘big data’ platform has been developed. The hardware and software components are designed to meet technical requirements for a range of energy and environment services for which the essential features are low cost devices and open communication protocols. The form of the hardware and software systems is herein described and results from deployments in Korea and the UK reported.
