Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings

The IEEE Access Journal has published our paper on anomaly detection. Titled Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings, with co-authors Megha Gaur, Ivan V. Bajic, and Angshul Majumdar. Here is the paper abstract: Energy consumption in buildings has steadily increased. Buildings consume more energy than necessary due to suboptimal design and … Continue reading Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings

HUE Dataset Released!

Today I am pleased to announce the release of a new public dataset called the The Hourly Usage of Energy Dataset for Buildings in British Columbia (HUE). There is an accompanying paper published in Elsevier's Data in Brief journal that describes the dataset in detail. Here is a brief summary: Having access to long-term consumption data from multiple … Continue reading HUE Dataset Released!
