OPEN DEI hosted its first Energy Domain Workshop on April 6, 2020. The main goal of the workshop was to foster collaboration between the selected Innovation Actions in the Energy domain and facilitate their specific project developments, by creating several Working Groups. To define the next actions, OPEN DEI facilitated the discussion together with the projects in the Energy ecosystem and with representatives of the European Commission, Mark van Stiphout (DG Energy) and Rolf Riemenschneider (DG Connect).
During the workshop, a representative from BD4OPEM presented the project and its main activities to the Energy domain community.
BD4OPEM – Big Data for OPen innovation Energy Marketplace
Technology offers a huge range of opportunities for the energy market. By combining the old metering, operation and control devices with smart systems, there’s a huge amount of data available that is unused or underused. This data offers a range of possibilities to improve existing energy services and create new ones. The EU-funded BD4OPEM project will develop an analytic toolbox based on Big Data techniques, providing tools for enabling efficient business processes in the energy sector. By extracting more value from available data, a range of innovative services will be created in the fields of grid monitoring, operation and maintenance, network planning, fraud detection, smart energy management for houses/buildings/industries, blockchain transactions and flexibility aggregation for demand-response in smart grids.
