The Building Genome Project
The Building Genome Project is Retroficiency's effort to gain a deeper understanding of how buildings consume energy and the energy efficiency opportunities they present, in cities throughout the United States.
Like the human genome, the building genome is a detailed mapping of hundreds of distinct markers, composed of a variety of equipment and operational characteristics, that influence how a building functions.
The project combines publicly available building data with advanced analytics to create each building's genome. These genomes are used to develop energy models, which estimate how each building consumes energy and determine how each could save energy.
The Building Genome Project: New York City
For the first project, Retroficiency mapped the genomes of more than 30,000 commercial buildings in New York City and ran three energy-saving scenarios to demonstrate their impact on the portfolio.
