Fulfilling occupants’ comfort whilst reducing energy consumption is still an unsolved problem in most of tertiary buildings. However, the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) techniques lead to research this matter. In this paper the EEPSA (Energy Efficiency Prediction Semantic Assistant) process is presented, which leverages the Semantic Web Technologies (SWT) to enhance the KDD process for achieving energy efficiency in tertiary buildings while…

An Ontology-Driven Approach to Support Data Analysts with Thermal Comfort Problems in the Built Environment

This article proposes the exploitation of Semantic Technologies to support data analysts in the discovery of the variables that should be considered for making accurate predictive models for thermal comfort problems within buildings.

IoT Integration based on Semantic Technologies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Once heterogeneous information from different sources and in heterogeneous formats is adequately integrated, it has been used to build a predictive model that supports facility managers choosing an energy efficient HVAC control strategy that ensures occupants thermal comfort.

EEPSA as a core ontology for energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings

The EEPSA (Energy Efficiency Prediction Semantic Assistant) ontology which supports such an assistant is presented and is developed on the basis that a proper axiomatization shapes the set of admitted models better, and establishes the ground for a better interoperability.

Knowledge Discovery Approach to Understand Occupant Experience in Cross-Domain Semantic Digital Twins

This paper aims to show how combining knowledge discovery in databases and semantic web technology could lead to an improved understanding of occupants’ experiences in buildings and results in enriched digital twins that can be used for occupant-centric decision-making.

EROSO: Semantic Technologies Towards Thermal Comfort in Workplaces

EROSO (thERmal cOmfort SOlution), a framework that combines KDD processes and Semantic Technologies for ensuring thermal comfort in workplaces is presented and results show that Semantic technologies make the proposed solution more usable and extensible, as well as ensuring a thermal comfort situation throughout the working day.

Semantic Interoperability for Demand-Response programs: RESPOND project’s use case

The RESPOND project aims to deploy an interoperable energy automation, monitoring and control solution that will deliver demand response at a dwelling, building and district level getting advantage of the user engagement to achieve a cooperative demand response behavior.
