NREL's Energy Databus Storing Big Energy Data

The Energy Databus began as a project aimed at addressing campus energy consumption and tracking issues at NREL. Now, with the ability to store large amounts of data, some of which measured by the second, along with rich functionality, the open-source software tool could offer the same solutions to many facilities.

From a single building to a large military base or college campus, the Databus tool has the ability to handle many different size campuses. The software allows you to take meter data, often spread out around campus, record it and make sense of it.

The Databus tool can be accessed through the OpenEI tool page. You can register for a demo of the product, and contact the Energy Databus team for any questions.
