Enroute: The Energy Router

We have built Enroute-a building energy testbed which can facilitate evaluation of energy efficient control and de-mand response strategies for real buildings. The testbed makes it easy to run controlled and realistic experiments on buildings under different scenarios and at faster time scales than real buildings. The testbed contains a scaled down model of a centralized HVAC system, sensing and control using BACnet and a MATLAB based front-end that can be used to run and observe experiments.
