The project, commissioned by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will develop an innovative service that will unlock and centralise the UK’s current patchwork of energy metadata sources to improve their visibility and accuracy. The aim of the service will be to help accelerate the journey to net zero by making information more accessible to scale up renewable energy projects and enable new innovation.
Arup, Icebreaker One and Hippo are asking energy data users to tell the partnership about their needs through a short 1:1 interview, have a say in the process by joining an Advisory Group, and showcase their energy data visualisations.
There’s more information about how people from across the energy sector can get involved here.
The EDVP aims to deliver a new service that:
increases the visibility of energy system metadata (a description of the attributes of a dataset), by listing metadata centrally, to an agreed standard
provides a mechanism for missing/closed data to be requested by energy system participants
provides direct access to data that is open to the user
allows data users to provide feedback on the quality of data
collects service analytics.
The EDVP project forms part of the Modernising Energy Data (MED) programmes being commissioned by BEIS, Ofgem and Innovate UK, which are leading the change towards a digital energy sector.
