Note unusual day

The National Research Council Canada has embarked on a multidisciplinary project to leverage sensor network technology to improve commercial building operations. The main thrusts of this work are development of new air quality sensors, models to forecast building energy use, and location-aware delivery of indoor environment services. These thrusts will be described briefly. This will be followed by a detailed description of one project that used a variety of techniques to gather data related to total occupancy of a study building, and used this information to improve a model to forecast the building power demand. If building operators have a tool that can accurately forecast the energy use of their building several hours ahead they can better respond to utility price signals, and play a fuller role in the coming Smart Grid.
