About the Data

NYSERDA will provide approximately 200 buildings worth of time-series data from the RTEM (Real Time Energy Management) database and Onboard’s API. This database supports key commercial real estate stakeholders and market influencers in identifying, prioritizing and implementing energy conservation, decarbonization and electrification opportunities. Data sources include building automation systems and connected devices, utility meters, equipment submeters and IoT sensors. This data was collected by dozens of RTEM vendors in real time, from commercial and multifamily properties located throughout New York State.
