Join us to shape our Net Zero Future and make it easy to search, access, and securely share energy data.
As organisations develop data and analytics solutions across their businesses and explore increasingly diverse use cases (eg. flexibility, asset management, network planning, customer data, EV capacity) they are becoming both data providers and data users.
Open Energy is a non-profit initiative to address how to create open marketplaces for secure and trusted data sharing. This includes the development of principles, practices and programmes that convene the sector around its data-sharing needs. Its scope of work includes, but is not limited to, data search, access control, authentication, consent management, codified data rights, liability frameworks, regulatory compliance, technology and data standards.
- convenes stakeholders across the public and private sectors to shape national data infrastructure
- helps inform strategic development for data and digitisation
- explores use cases that demonstrate both commercial and public value
- identifies opportunities to unlock efficiencies and innovation that deliver a Net Zero Future
- bridges gaps between commercial priorities and the public interest
- addresses emerging recommendations (e.g. EDiT) and regulation
- showcase impact stories and lessons learned
- delivers services that support the market (search, access control, codes of practice, standards)
