A platform with real-time data regarding energy production and consumption on the island of Bornholm not only provides the basis for the Danish government’s digitization strategy, but also allows businesses and researchers to develop future green energy system development.
Energydata.dk collects data from a number of different stakeholders in the energy sector. This collection database real-time data before analyzing and providing to businesses and researchers who are working to develop new solutions for energy systems of the future.
“The current energy crisis has demonstrated how important it is for us to ensure power supply and ensure that it is made up of many different energy sources that can complement each other. However, a smart and coherent energy system—for example, an optimized regional heating, electricity and biogas system integration—will only be realized if the necessary data is available. ,” said Anders Kragh, an expert. software developer based at DTU’s Department of Wind and Energy Systems, which oversees the Energydata.dk database.
Energydata.dk therefore represents the first step on the road to creating the basis for a coherent, intelligent energy system. The platform features real-time data from energy companies HOFOR and Bornholms Energi og Forsyning, as well as a host of other data. According to Anders Kragh, data related to energy production on Bornholm is of particular interest.
“Bornholm is about 1% of the population of Denmark, which means that the data on energy production and consumption on the island could easily be expanded to represent the whole country.”
Input to the government’s digitalization strategy
Energydata.dk was just updated as part of the Digital Energy Lab project and now benefits from a new, more user-friendly version. This means there is an opportunity to invite more partners to join the collaboration to find out what kind of data is worth publishing.
“Regarding the government’s digitization strategy and upcoming regulations on data disclosure in the supply sector, it is important to figure out which types of data offer the most value when they are disclosed. It could be data from substations, charging operators, county heating manufacturers or from somewhere else entirely. Energydata.dk can shed some light on this,” Anders Kragh said.
“This means users can access all relevant data in one place. If you want to create your own area of the database as part of research, development or demonstration projectthen you just have to grasp a simple interface,” says Anders Kragh.
Over the past few years, DTU has undertaken a number of projects with industry partners around the use of data from Energydata.dk. These are projects that are working on new digital solutions to improve the relationship between regional heating and Power supplyas well as solutions to provide more stable power by charging batteries using energy from wind turbines and solar cells.
