Shaping consumer-inclusive data pathwaYs towards the eNERGy transItion, through a reference Energy data Space implementation

Project description

A novel energy data sharing approach: when we all work together, we all pull ahead

Sharing data is essential, across all industries, to engage all value chain stakeholders in collective action for the realisation of a sustainable future, through increased knowledge and enhanced data-driven intelligence. The same will be true for the global green energy transition. The EU-funded SYNERGIES project will develop a stakeholder-inclusive energy data space to unleash the sharing potential across the energy data value chain. It will: integrate data from consumers, energy networks, buildings and mobility; make this data widely accessible; and enable collective intelligence approaches leading to data-driven innovative energy services. These services will empower and benefit consumers, support network operators, and create a resilient, inclusive and just green energy future.


SYNERGIES introduces a reference Energy Data Space Implementation that will attempt to unleash the data-driven innovation and sharing potential across the energy data value chain by leveraging on data and intelligence coming from diverse energy actors (prioritizing on consumers and introducing them as data owners/ providers) and coupled sectors (buildings, mobility) and effectively making them reachable and widely accessible. In turn, it will facilitate the transition from siloed data management approaches to collaborative ones which promote the creation of a data and intelligence ecosystem around energy (and other types of) data and enable the realization of data (intelligence)-driven innovative energy services that (i) value the flexibility capacity of consumers in optimizing energy networks’ operation, maximizing RES integration and self-consumption at different levels of the system (community, building), (ii) evidently support network operators in optimally monitoring, operating, maintaining and planning their assets and coordinating between each other (TSO-DSO collaboration) for enhancing system resilience, (iii) create an inclusive pathway towards the energy transition, through consumer empowerment, awareness and informed involvement in flexibility market transactions, (iv) step on real data streams and intelligence to deliver personalized and automated features to increase prosumer acceptance and remove intrusiveness, (v) facilitate the establishment of sustainable LECs by enhancing their role with Aggregator and BSP functions, and (vi) establish solid grounds for the creation of a new economy around energy data produced and shared across a complex value chain, in a secure, trustful, fair and acceptable manner. SYNERGIES will be extensively validated in 3 large-scale demonstration sites in Greece, Spain and Denmark involving complete value chains, diverse data sources, heterogeneous energy systems/assets and spanning different socio-economic characteristics.
