Abstract: Demand Side Management (DSM) programmes promote energy flexibility, cost reduction and resilience in both grids and buildings, which can be supported by integrating Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Building Automation System (BAS). Despite recent advances in the field, research to date remains limited in defining data requirement structures and interoperable approaches to exploit the potential of this integration. This paper defines a set of exchange requirements (ERs) to support DSM using BIM and BAS domains. The definition of these ERs is the foundation to create a common data model that enables context-aware DSM optimisation strategies.
