EDDIE - European Distributed Data Infrastructure for Energy

Project Details


The Clean Energy Package establishes the rights to access energy data to customers and share it with eligible parties of their choice. This enables new energy data-based services within and beyond the energy sector. The main barrier for this development is the lack of large- scale and uniform procedures in the EU. Players are tied to national practices, which limits their interoperability and growth perspective. These constraints have an industrial, economic and social dimension on a European level and beyond. As a solution, EDDIE creates a de- centralised, distributed, open-source Data Space, aligned with directions of the work on the Implementing Acts on Interoperability and other European activities. This European Distributed Data Infrastructure for Energy (EDDIE) lowers data integration costs drastically because the resulting EDDIE Framework lets energy service companies work and compete in a common European market. EDDIE’s vision is to make it cheap and easy for smart, data-based energy-related services to operate on a common European Energy Data Space. EDDIE will feature a streamlined, uniform European interface to energy data usable by everyone from service companies to end-user customers. EDDIE also targets the social problem of limited access to energy data. European customers across Member States will have a far greater choice between solutions. This boosts competition, quality and functionality of energy-data-based services by reducing cost-per-customer and leveraging economies of scale. EDDIE tackles the lack of access to measurements of in-house sensors. The Administrative Interface for In-house Data Access (AIIDA) provides the basis to share data streams close to real-time with remote services on a manageable consent basis. All EDDIE components enable interoperable solutions based on energy data available online and in-house. These components will be extendable and form the nucleus for a Common European Energy Data Space.
