THE LIVING CAMPUS

Our buildings are alive

We are installing electrical, water, gas and thermal meters in buildings across the Perth Campus, allowing us to track our utility use in real time. These meters are turning our campus into a living laboratory – a communications and teaching tool that is constantly updating us on how our buildings are performing.

We’re using data from these meters to help make our buildings more energy and water efficient, and transforming our campus into a live research project.

THE GOAL

Our aim is to install smart meters to capture all of our electrical, water, gas and thermal consumption across the Perth campus, with a number of metering projects currently underway.

SO FAR WE'VE INSTALLED:

800+

electrical meters

90+

water and gas meters

145+

thermal meters

SMART DATA

Smart monitoring

Every smart meter is connected to a data-engineering tool that analyses building utility consumption and alerts us to anything out of the ordinary.

Smart decisions

Knowing how our buildings use energy means we can make smart decisions about how we manage and operate facilities and build for the future.

SEE IT IN ACTION

You can now view live electricity data on the Living Campus dashboard.

Water, gas and thermal data coming soon.
