We are pleased to announce a scientific publication under the PROBONO project entitled ‘Knowledge Graphs’ Ontologies and Applications for Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Review’. The authors of this publication are Filippos Lygerakis, Nikolaos Kampelis and Dionysia Kolokotsa from the Technical University of Crete.
The article provides an overview of knowledge graphs (KGs) and ontologies for buildings. The adoption of KGs in the built environment is explored in order to improve data management throughout a building’s lifecycle. In addition, the value of KGs for supporting decision-making procedures is analysed. In this context, it is demonstrated that most efforts to date focused on providing decision support for the design and operational phases of a building. A wide range of applications is explored and classified based on their scope and functionalities, mainly associated with energy efficiency improvements and facility management procedures
