Freeing up energy data
The ability for people to freely share their energy data with service providers is a key enabler of sustainable energy. Elering has launched an initiative to harmonise data access called the European Data Alliance.
Recorded on 30 Jan 20
This webinar will cover:
- Future energy is decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised. The ability for people to freely share their energy data with service providers is a key enabler of sustainable energy.
- Achieving Europe’s energy and climate goals depends on integrating our retail and services markets. A key barrier today is lack of access to data in a harmonised way. Companies setting up in new markets have trouble accessing data and sending market messages.
- Will energy retail and services companies be able to operate around Europe without any barriers in 2023? How will people and businesses in Europe provide consent to their data in 2023? What are good practices in some countries today, what are barriers in others?
- Elering has launched an initiative to harmonise data access. On 28 November 2019 in Tallinn, grid operators representing 230 million people signed a letter of intent for this purpose. What is this Alliance, what will it achieve? What is the legal background for this work? Why are grid operators doing it? How does this affect companies today, people?
Name: Georg Rute
Company: Elering AS
Title: Head of Digitalisation
Georg leads the digital transformation of Elering and heads the smart grid unit which is responsible for the initiative to harmonise Europe’s energy data. Elering’s aim is to support achieving Europe’s energy and climate goals by integrating Europe’s energy markets. A single energy services and retail market from Portugal to Finland would increase competition, bring better services to people and accelerate the energy transition. A key missing piece today is harmonised data access. In Estonia, Elering’s platform Estfeed enables customers to access and share their data, as required by the Clean Energy Package and GDPR. Before joining Elering, Georg cofounded a demand response aggregator, Sympower, that is currently active in Finland, the Netherlands and Israel. Georg holds a Master’s degree in Sustainable Energy from Imperial College London.
