Delivering a consumer-centric system through open access to data
Consumers should be at the centre of the twin green and digital transition. Ensuring open access to data from and behind the meter, will enable consumer-oriented energy services at scale and enhance decision making across the entire value chain. Consumers should not only be able to seamlessly get access and give access to their data to any third party of their choice, so energy services providers can deliver services and business models fit for their needs. Energy-related data should be made accessible to system operators to support their regulated tasks in a more renewable and decentralized system. In this session we will share our vision to make this happen in the next few years.
