Energy Data Reporting Tools for New and Existing Buildings: RWDI Compass Tool, & the Toronto 2030 Platform


Thank you to everyone who joined us on November 7th for our Energy Data Reporting Tools for New and Existing Buildings Official Launch & Pub Night. It was a fantastic evening of presentations, live demos, and plenty of discussion. We will be showcasing the tools again in the new year - stay tuned!

Toronto 2030 Platform

The Toronto 2030 Platform is an online tool, created by the Canadian Urban Institute (CUI), to track building performance towards GHG emission reduction targets in downtown Toronto (the 2030 District). It displays emissions from energy use, water use and transportation by individual District, building type and geography. The 2030 Platform helps users benchmark their buildings, connect to conservation programs, commit to the District 2030 goals, and share actual building performance data.


The Compass Tool

The Compass tool streamlines energy benchmarking and reporting during the design phase of building development projects. The tool enables users to upload energy models (eQuest, EnergyPlus, or IES-VE) and then automatically extracts over 400 building variables and completes the submission requirements for six building standards and programs (LEED, TGS, OBC SB-10, 2030 Challenge, SBD and HPNC) in a matter of seconds. A data visualization platform allows users to benchmark their modelled building against a database, which in turn, informs the design process pushing buildings to ever higher levels of performance.
