The DIMMER (District Information Modelling and Management for Energy Reduction) system integrates BIM (Building Information Modelling) and district level 3D models with real-time data from sensors and user feedback to analyze and correlate buildings utilization and provide real-time feedback about energy-related behaviors. The overall objective is to create a District Information Model (DIM) and Management system. It enables access through personal devices of energy-related information for energy and cost-analysis, tariff planning and evaluation, failure identification and maintenance, energy information sharing. The following features are included: i) real-time data collection; ii) advanced middleware technology for data integration; iii) simulation and virtual visualization; iv) user/social profiling, visualization and feedback; v) energy efficiency and cost analysis engine; vi) web interface and interaction.
