The Benchmark 8760 Platform is an open-source solution for collecting hourly energy performance data from commercial buildings, and exploring new performance benchmarking methodologies.

The solution is deployed at the Benchmark 8760 Proof of Concept Portal which is collecting and visualizing anonymous hourly performance data provided by project participants.

This documentation is aimed at engineers looking to deploy a copy of the Portal and product manufacturers looking to develop connectors to provide data to the platform. It is best read together with the general Platform Technical Documentation located here.
