This dataset include data from 34,884 commercial smart heat meters and 10,765 commercial smart water meters, covering a period of up to 5 years (2018 - 2022). The data originates from single-family houses in Aalborg Municipality, Denmark. Additionally, comprehensive building characteristics were collected for each building, where available, from the Danish Building and Dwelling Register (BBR) and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) input data. As a result, up to 86 distinct characteristics per building are available. A well-established methodology was applied to process all smart meter data, resulting in equidistant hourly data with no erroneous or missing values. Rule sets were further employed to filter the building characteristics derived from the EPCs, enhancing the data quality.
