Using Big Data for Energy Savings

Reference: Høje-Taastrup Municipality

How we solved the task

As a part of the project ”Høje-Taastrup Going Green”, Viegand Maagøe was asked to create an overview of Høje-Taastrup Municipality’s data. The aim of the project was e.g. to make an action plan for energy savings in single-family houses.

We collected and structured relevant data by using big data.  We assessed 13 different data sources in 36 data tables. The structural approach for analyzing the data was established at the beginning of the project.

Viegand Maagøe evaluated e.g.:

  • Buildings
  • Supply districts
  • Energy and water consumption
  • Thermography from the air
  • Property valuation and loans
  • Citizens and vehicles

Contract period: 2015


With the analysis, Høje-Taastrup Municipality received an overview of accessible data, what the different types of data can be used for, and how to use them.

The analysis revealed the potential of combining a number of data and thereby achieving new knowledge that can be used to create energy savings.

Høje-Taastrup Municipality can e.g. use the data to find houses in the municipality that has oil burners as their source of heat and therefore have bad energy labels.
