Challenge Name:

Regional Energy Planning with Big Data

Product Description

Future regional energy systems need to integrate electric and hydrogen based transport, heating and renewable generation and storage into regional grids that support the zero carbon energy transition. This is the key for the EU to meet its climate and Green Deal goals by 2050. The rate at which investment is deployed is too slow at only €200 billion of a required €400 billion each year.

The problem is not the availability of capital but the long time it takes to plan Regional Energy Systems. A solution is required to de-silo the energy Data Value Chain so that integrated Regional Energy Systems can be rapidly designed and deployed. The key elements are a) Cleaning and ingesting a large amount of energy (network, demand, generation) and non-energy data (sociodemographic, transport, future trends); b) A common analysis framework to access and analyze data, to promote best practice in modelling; c) A visualization interface for stakeholders to collaboratively interact.

Usage of Standards for data interoperability:

  • UK Modernising Energy Data Applications API standards

  • GAIAx
