Building Energy Data Exchange Specification 1.0 Announcement + Webinar - November 13, 2014

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The U. S. Department of Energy is excited to announce the launching of the Building Energy Data Exchange Specification (BEDES) Data Dictionary 1.0.

Over the past year, more than 80 stakeholders participated in a Working Group that reviewed and tested BEDES Beta to ensure that the final version would meet their needs. The BEDES Data Dictionary 1.0 is the product of that process. It establishes terms, definitions and field formats for over 650 commonly collected pieces of information about buildings, their energy performance, physical and operational characteristics, and energy conservation measures. BEDES will provide a powerful platform for consistent data exchange between tools and databases in the building energy efficiency sector.

On November 13 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. eastern time, the BEDES team will present a webinar on the BEDES Dictionary 1.0, as well as the Working Group’s recommendations for its implementation and management. 

Register for the webinar here.

You can learn more about future plans and the history behind BEDES on DOE's BEDES website.

BEDES 1.0 would not exist without the expertise and input of Working Group members, and it will continue to grow and evolve with the help of this dedicated community. As a member, you can contribute to the future evolution of BEDES Dictionary and implementation activities, learn about what others are doing, and view upcoming events. BOMA members can join the Working Group by signing up for the Forum on LBNL's BEDES website.
