This website provides details on the deployment of sensors that monitor energy consumption of a household in the Netherlands. This website currently hosts data from a single household. We are currently extending our deployment to more households. DRED (Dutch Residential Energy Dataset) is the first open-access, publicly available dataset from The Netherlands. Our deployment consists of several sensors measuring electricity, occupants occupancy and ambient parameters in a household. The data was collected over a period of 6 months from 5th July to 5th December 2015. The DRED dataset includes:
We use off-the-shelf sensors to monitor various parameters in the household. The table below shows the sensors deployed, data collected and the sampling frequency.
|Sensor type||Device used||Data collected||Sampling frequency|
|Appliance level consumption||Plugwise circle||time, power||1 Hz|
|House level consumption||Smart meter + Plugwise smile||time, power||1 Hz|
|Indoor room temperature||Qualcomm beacons (5 rooms)||time, degrees||1 min|
|Outdoor temperature||Qualcomm beacons||time, degrees||1 min|
|Environmental data||RNMI website||time, windspeed, humidity, precipitation||1 hour|
|Occupancy information||smartphone, smartwatch||time, room level location||1 min|
|WiFi RSSI||smartphone, smartwatch||time, RSSI, MAC id, AP name||1 min|
|BT RSSI||smartphone, smartwatch||time, RSSI,battery level, beacon id||1 min|
The DRED dataset is made available to the research community to test the performance of energy disaggregation algorithms, derive appliance usage behavior and analyze demand response algorithms. The data was collected as part of research towards developing efficient energy disaggregation and demand side mangement algorithms. You can know more about my research here.
To access the data, please send us your contact information and a short description on what you plan to do with the data via e-mail or fill up this form. I will provide the necessary credentials to access the dataset. Please not that, since the deployment is live, we keep updating the dataset and each new release will be labeled with month and year. Please cite the following paper(s) when you are using the dataset. Papers: 1. LocED: Location-aware Energy Disaggregation Framework
