The service is part of efforts by the U.S. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to encourage benchmarking of building energy efficiency, with clear guidelines for actions to reduce waste and improve energy performance. It is intended both to process data in a way that supports decision-making and to provide access to raw data for an application's own processing.
API methods support direct retrieval of complete datasets as well as querying data for specific building types, sizes, locations, ages, and activities housed (e.g., education, health care, retail, general office, etc.). Requests can specify energy profile details of interest, units of measurement, and chart types for output data.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
