We consider two problems in the design and operation of energy-efficient buildings. The first is the prediction of energy consumption of a building from that of similar buildings in its geographical neighborhood. The second problem concerns the localization of faults in building sub-systems with a focus on faults that lead to anomalous energy consumption. For both problems, we propose algorithmic techniques based on machine learning to address them. Simulation results using EnergyPlus show the promise of the proposed methods.
