Abstract

Usage indicators are proposed in smart buildings in order to analyze occupant behavior towards energy usage. Indicators are a means of communication to interact with occupants of a living area so they can make informed decisions regarding their everyday customs and uses. Through them, occupants will be able to compare and challenge themselves with others or with their past results. Moreover, occupants will be able to understand the consequences and effects of their energy behavior and learn how to improve it without degrading their comfort. Heat flow through door/window indicators (heat losses), and dishwasher indicator have been calculated and discussed in an apartment context. There were 70 heterogeneous sensors previously installed to gather the information needed. These indicators have been evaluated by considering three conditions: measurable/calculable, understandable and comparable/challengeable between different houses or users. Studying and measuring different indicators give a sort of energy performance of a building, which in turn helps to improve automated building management tools.
