Data-driven insights from Internet of Things (IoT) devices are enabling energy and sustainability experts to make better-informed decisions like never before. Energy use within buildings is inherently variable, and until recently, even the brightest minds were in the dark when it came to explaining fluctuations in usage, due to the long list of factors that can cause a building’s energy usage to change seemingly at random. Having a fundamental understanding of how a building uses energy and what causes it to change is essential to optimising performance in the long term.

'Is there coffee? Have you seen any coffee? Do you have coffee? WHERE IS THE COFFEE?’

These questions blaze through my mind as I enter the Tower Hotel’s suite, lining up to collect my badge and T-shirt. A sea of people donning the typical programmer apparel –T-shirts, hoodies and jeans—all wait to enter the conference rooms where the first tutorials of the day will begin.
