In 2009-2010, the California Energy Commission (CEC) funded the University of California Berkeley Building to Grid (B2G) test bed project to create a research facility that can examine aspects of electrical and other energy usage to determine total energy flows by functional use. CSUS shadowed the B2G project and documented the research test bed creation at Cory Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. The hybrid wired and wireless network topology employed in this test bed is generating a very large volume of tagged data that relates electrical energy consumption to time of day and ultimately to the building function consuming that energy. Much of this data is available under the Berkeley sMAP system which will be briefly introduced. Lastly this paper will discuss parts of the translation of the UCB methodology to future CSUS building to grid research.
