REF

REF tracks the patterns of electricity use in buildings and provides timely feedback to their operators. Explore this page to see innovative energy management in action.

Explore how some leading office buildings performed yesterday*

Active building operators continually fine-tune their buildings' systems in response to changing conditions. REF gives timely feedback so they can fine-tune more effectively and achieve optimum performance. These visualisations show near real-time results from Australian office towers that are utilising daily feedback.

Weather data provided by the Bureau of Meteorology.

* Please note: we use the word 'yesterday' to refer to the most recently past 'work day'. If yesterday was Sunday we'll show Friday, unless Friday was a Public Holiday, in which case we'll show Thursday. We don't like to trouble building operators when they're trying to enjoy a well-earned day off!

More about the REF service

REF gives meaningful feedback to the operators of commercial buildings. This web-page is a window into a live system that shows how communication of clear, timely and actionable energy performance feedback can enable building operators to more effectively manage energy use. Each day a single commercial building can use the same amount of electricity as over 1,300 typical Australian homes, so every kilowatt-hour counts.
