The energy consumption of buildings lies often far above the performance objectives of the design phase. This is due to several factors among other serious deficits in the energy operation of building services. TOPAs adopts the principle of continuous performance auditing by not only considering energy use but also knowledge and understanding of the buildings use and their climatic state. Thus it provides a holistic performance auditing process through supporting tools and methodologies that try to minimise the gap between predicted and actual energy use. TOPAs offers an open BMS (Building Management System) IoT driven framework. This framework is composed of core services to connect to any BMS and aggregate all the information in an open platform. Add-on services are also available to improve the understanding of buildings and reduce further the gap.
