Big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) is reshaping building energy management and allowing for the creation of a digital twin of a building. Occupancy, comfort, and thermal models contribute to the creation of this digital twin, using IoT devices and BMSs as data streams. The digital twin that is created provides valuable information into a building’s current and future performance from an energy consumption perspective. Through the addition of machine learning and cloud computing, intelligent energy management platforms can create a system whose output is insight into the predicted behavior of a building that simply cannot be obtained from merely observing models by themselves. The digital twin can be used to test how a building would respond to numerous variable changes in real-time and can help create a responsive building design. This strategy can not only be used to predict performance, but also to identify anomalies that indicate mechanical inefficiencies and energy drains. The future of building intelligence relies on the intersection of this digital twin, BMS control and human interaction - including direct hot/cold feedback from occupants and the expertise of the facility manager. This session will explore the creation of and the benefits of building digital twins and the impact they will have on the future energy management. It will outline how a digital twin be used for enhanced building performance, cost-savings and comfort, as well as leveraged to meet the changing needs of the power grid.
