Owners of commercial buildings with a PV system installed need to be able to answer two key questions:
- “Is my PV system generating as much energy as it should?”.
- “How can I reduce my electricity consumption?”
This project will develop intelligent algorithms using real time on-site weather, building and system inputs to automate the analysis of the electricity production and consumption. The monitoring solution developed in this project will monitor the energy generation of PV systems using energy modelling algorithms, and investigate integration into building management systems to provide a tool that monitors both energy generation and utilisation.
