arbn energy is a cutting-edge research project that aims to deliver better prediction of energy use in existing buildings. With these models, building owners and operators can make informed decisions on the best path to increased energy efficiency in their buildings. arbnco is in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the University of Strathclyde to integrate advanced building energy modelling techniques into their offering. The project will leverage existing building information from conventional sources along with metered data to train dynamic simulation energy models.
The project is directed at closing the “performance gap” between expected and actual energy use by increasing your understanding of your building. As part of the model development, key contributors to energy use can be identified on a per-building basis through the coupling of actual building metered data and advanced optimisation techniques. The strength of arbn energy is in using dynamic simulation models to predict energy use. Once these models have been developed for a building they can predict the likely impacts of energy efficiency measures.
