Denmark's Energy Data Made Available for Energy Efficiency Developments

IN Denmark a new online portal has been launched to provide open access to the country’s energy data.

The Energy Data Service was launched on Friday and will display real-time energy consumption data from Danish municipalities. The data also reveals CO2 emissions.

The state-owned gas and electricity operator Energinet and the Government are confident this new service will generate a revolution for data-led, smart energy efficiency technology.

Thos who wish to invest and innovate in energy efficiency development will be able to drill into the available data to build and develop apps and other smart technologies to further energy efficiency, reduce energy bills and emissions.

The service will provide developers access to all datasets on the portal. This machine-to-machine exchange of data is essential to the streamlined use of data in applications and services.

“For the data to really benefit society, it is not enough that it can be downloaded manually. It must be made available in a form that allows it to be automatically included in products and services. In that way, our energy consumption can be smarter and more advanced in the future electricity system,” explains Peder Ø. Andreasen, President and CEO of Energinet.

“Energy Data Service sets our energy data free. The open and machine-readable data makes it easier for software developers to use energy data in innovative apps and smart data services. Services that will benefit citizens and companies and provide entrepreneurs with new ways to make money,” added Andreasen.
