Loughrea Online 3D Building Energy Analysis & Visualisation Platform

By November 11, 2023 November 28th, 2023 Our Blog

Sustainable Energy West, Loughrea  is well on the way to developing an online Energy Analysis and Visualisation platform to help communicate and promote the development of sustainable energy practices in Loughrea and surrounds.  This will facilitate the viewing of energy usage and BER ratings of buildings in the town.  It is a visual and intuitive non-technical web platform.  It is SEW’s desire to display the energy information acquired on a 3d virtual representation of the town.  It will show:

  • a  visual interpretation of the data collected
  • will facilitate the identification of energy use types on a per building basis for example Building Information, Fossil Fuels, Electricity, Renewables, Building Retrofit, Motoring etc

The 3d model will be connected to a buildings energy database which can contain detailed energy use information where is can be acquired.

The majority of the data has been collected by students from NUIG and St Raphaels College, Loughrea. complete this online form and help us build a bigger and cleared picture of the energy usage in our town.

This project is supported by Naomh Breandain Credit Union and GRD ( Leader).
