You have a few options for real time (or "near real time", which is when you have a delay between the collection & time to serve it, or for those that sample at a lower cadence) There are a lot of considerations when dealing with 'real time' data: Who is the intended audience? (and do they already have standards for serving this type of data?) Is the ...

This is not a direct answer, but you could try to extrapolate the data using openstreetmap. As far as I know, the data contains also information about the usage of the building (housing, industrial). Based on the size and the usage you could estimate the energy use of the building. How it is done for the heat demand is described e.g. in this IEEE paper.
