Illini Energy Dashboard
Using interactive meters and menus, the Illini Energy Dashboard
provides real-time energy data and information for selected university buildings and details electrical, chilled water, and steam consumption rates. As additional real-time meters are installed, those buildings will be added to the Energy Dashboard.
The dashboard promotes sustainability by emphasizing energy usage accountability and the impact personal decisions have on energy consumption through feedback tools targeted to building users. In addition, it can be used for research by establishing links between energy consumption and behavioral changes, and comparing present and past energy performance. Charts compare energy usage between selected buildings. Gauges display real-time energy use data by building for electricity, heating, and cooling.
