Energy Data Sharing


With hundreds of millions smart meters installed worldwide, the energy sector carries on its digital transformation. They enable citizens to know their personal consumption, get a better understanding and be offered new services. The potential is great, but only if the citizen is in the center of their personal data and have enough trust about how it is handled. The panel will show a overview of real and tangible benefits from a customer-centric use of energy personal data.

Giving access and control to Dutch citizens over their energy data
Bart Janssen, Alliander

For the energy transition is the participation of the customer key! For this is trust en control for the customer is very important and the base to share their energy data to service providers.
Looking from the perspective of the GDPR and non discrimination for the date is a solution needed what is based on the principle of privacy by design.
I will give a demo based on decentralized trust. Attribute based signing and Attributes vs identity system. We use this demo to prove that the way of working based on the ideas of MyData can works for the Energy sector

My Energy data cross border data access
André Alnor, Energinet

Danish Energinet and Estonian Elering would like to do a show and tell session on using a Sovrin and Oauth2 setup for a energy specific MyData system, we have currently done a preto type with help from TrustNet and are about to launch a prototype version. The goal is to develop a system that opens data access for both data owners and so called agents across the European Union. Our aim is to have the first production system up and running in 2018 and an open sourced version and an identity/access framework for cross border access in production within 2019.

Value Creation opportunities from energy data
Lukas Keller, EIT InnoEnergy/Power2U
The energy system is undergoing a major transition, with the rollout of smart meters well underway in most countries as one aspect of many. We can also observe that more and energy assets are being deployed behind the meter, like photovoltaics, batteries, electric vehicle chargers and heat pumps. Together, these assets generate a wealth of energy consumer data points in real time that enable a range of products and services beyond what is possible from smart meter data alone.
These large volumes of data can and should be effectively mined and monetized by old and new actors in the energy value chain, while respecting the GDPR.
We will present our work on a systematic framework for energy data monetization, identification of the monetization business cases across the energy and utility landscape and provide context to how they relate to standard data-driven revenue models.

We will close with two cases of startups supported by InnoEnergy that generate direct consumer value from energy data in Sweden.

Data for new distributed energy services
Natalie Samovich, Enercoutim
P2P models in R&I projects and spin offs: VICINITY2020 and SHAR-Q H2020 projects.
VISION 2050 for EU energy systems brings up distributed energy management models within many components of the envisioned System of Systems.
Evolving P2P models in distributed energy are based on IoT platforms and require new interoperable approaches to bring silos of devices and systems together. The issues are not fully solved on technology, business models level and regulation. Nevertheless, the role of energy services user/producer are emerging within the decarbonising, decentralising and deregulating energy system within the EU.
VICINTY’s H2020 research and innovation project´s vision is to provide “interoperability” as a service, create a platform for cross-domain value-added services.
SHAR-Q project builds on the components of the VICINITY2020 project and demonstrates P2P energy services, such as shared storage capacities. Will participation in demand response markets for prosumers and SMEs become a reality?
Expect an innovation in action snapshot – from platforms to business models towards transactive grids in one snapshot.
