SCiBER Data Set

The Smart City Building Energy Resources (SCiBER) data set contains load values in kWh of 107 municipal buildings over a period of 4 years in a 15-minutes resolution. The data can be used to develop Smart City applications and can help scholars in energy research.

The accompanying publications describes the data set and introduces a few avenues of research using the given data. The data set can also be used to complement residential building consumption data to develop a more accurate picture of city consumption patterns.  The data is available under the following link with tab-separated values. The data hasn’t been pre-processed.

Data about the energy consumption of buildings contains valuable information which is essential for the future energy system and smart cities. However, only few researchers publish the data on which their methods and analysis are based. This lack of publicly available data sets, makes it difficult to compare strategies and results, and hinders a stronger development of the research field. Thus, we provide the Smart City Buildings Energy Resources (SCiBER) data set of municipal energy consumption data, with the objective to facilitate the comparability of research methods in the field. If you have any questions regarding the data set, please contact philipp.staudt∂kit.edu.
