How Weather Forecasts Can Help Optimize Energy Usage

How Weather Forecasts Can Help Optimize Energy Usage | green infographics | Scoop.it

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have been exploring how using public weather forecast information can help deliver significant reductions in energy consumption.


Combining information from the Bureau of Meteorology with data from existing building management systems, the researchers have developed an intelligent model that remains one step ahead of the building’s temperature changes, automatically adjusting the heating and cooling supply accordingly.

Early experimental results have provided encouraging results, with at least 10 per cent energy savings shown to be possible.

Charting the Greenest Office Buildings in the United States | green infographics | Scoop.it

This infographic shows how skyscrapers across the US are implementing energy-saving strategies to reduce their carbon footprint.


Buildings account for more than 70% of Chicago’s emissions, and the city’s business sector is looking to reduce its footprint. The Sears Tower is a shining example – it launched plans for a $350 million green renovation that includes solar panels, a green roof garden, wind turbines and more. Check out the infographic for a look at the ways other skyscrapers in the US are implementing energy-saving strategies!

A Visual Guide to Energy Use in Buildings in the Middle East... | green infographics | Scoop.it

In celebrating this year’s World Green Building Week, Carboun has released a visual guide to energy use in buildings with the goal of explaining the overall state of energy use in the region and the significance of buildings as a major sector in energy consumption. It also aims to comparatively explain the nuances of the major trends of energy use in buildings as a baseline analysis for further research.

The visual guide, which was researched and designed by Karim Elgendy with additional contributions from a small research team, was based on raw data obtained from the International Energy Agency and the World Bank.

New Interactive Map Estimates Solar Potential For D.C. Buildings

New Interactive Map Estimates Solar Potential For D.C. Buildings | green infographics | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered what the solar potential of your home is? Or where you work? Or the White House maybe?


A new interactive map commissioned by the District Department of the Environment and created by Mapdwell allows users to click on almost any building in the city and see "how much electricity can be produced on their rooftops from solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, how the financial investment will pay off, and how much pollution will be reduced." You can also see where solar systems are already installed and what the yearly financial benefit is.

The data used to create the map comes from the Army's Light Detection and Ranging (Lidar) system, aerial imagery from the D.C. Geographic Information System and building footprints from EarthData International, Inc. Mapdwell is "a collaborative effort by researchers, academics, and professionals at MIT."
