Create a tool or a concept of a tool to reduce the energy consumption of the buildings owned by the City of Helsinki proactively. Target group can be either tenants or the building owner (City of Helsinki) of both. Helsinki has an ambitious strategical aim to be carbon-neutral by 2035. The city owns over 2000 housing and other buildings so it really makes sense to research and analyse the energy consumption data of these buildings in order to enhance proactively the energy-efficient. Helsinki has opened up very interesting energy consumption data about all the buildings as open data. In addition there are other kind of data sets available as open data as well, like basic information about buildings and 3D city model.
The energy consumption data of the city-owned buildings is available as open data here:
