Abstract

In this study the case of the energy consumption profile of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Greece, is presented and statistically analyzed by clustering methods on the basis of seasonal daily load curves and load shape factors, using data from real-Time measurements. The results indicate that the categorization of active power demand in university buildings is an extremely useful tool for understanding and predicting the seasonal, hourly and daily energy consumption changes, which is the first step towards adopting energy efficiency policies in such scale premises as well as performing demand-side actions aiming to achieve a more economical and environmentally sustainable energy usage.
