In general, a trade-off between comfort satisfaction and minimization of energy consumption or overall costs needs to be found by building energy management systems. Additionally, the design of energy management strategies often requires high effort and expert knowledge in order to model the dynamics within a building, which leads to very specific solutions with limited reuse. Thus, this work presents an approach for the automatic generation of optimization problems for building energy management based on machine-readable semantics. For this purpose, an ontology hosts all relevant information necessary for the optimization problem formulation. Information extraction and transformation into the optimization problem domain are addressed. Moreover, a case study demonstrates the functionality of the proposed procedure.
