Project "OpenMeter" for the Digitalization of Energy Infrastructure

Open Data and Analysis Platform for Greater Energy Efficiency Through Smart Meter

Press Release / December 09, 2020

In order to drive forward the digitization of the energy infrastructure, there is a need for real, traceable measurement data from the energy world. Where there is already a good data situation for large generation units - thanks to obligations for transparency - there is still a large amount of blank space for real measurement data from energy consumers. However, this data represents an important basis for innovations in energy system transformation, whether for the creation of smart grids, efficiency measures or business models based on artificial intelligence. The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM is contributing to the development of the "Open Energy Meter Data" platform, which aims to create a web-based contact point for collecting and analyzing energy consumption data.
