Working with Building Energy Efficiency Data.
Why? The MOS just released data on municipal buildings’ energy usage and is planning a similar release for commercial buildings later this summer, as part of the city’s commitment to reduce citywide building energy consumption by 10% by 2015. The speakers will walk through the data to brainstorm app ideas from the open data community and find priorities around additional municipal energy data sets.
