Paper by Sean Ennis and Giuseppe Colangelo: “The green and digital transitions are concomitantly underway. In its upcoming Action Plan on Digitalisation of Energy, the European Commission aims to develop a digital-driven “European energy data space” to allow for data sharing and system integration between the energy sector and other sectors, e.g. mobility.
CERRE has begun working at the intersection of digital and energy with a new, cross-sector research initiative aimed at identifying the business case and governance principles for the development of a European energy data space, using the concrete example of smart electric vehicle charging points, which will play an important role in increasing the flexibility and efficiency of the energy sector.
Key research questions to be addressed as part of the project are:
- What property rights are included within the smart charging data?
- What is the business case for industry players and customers to share their data?
- What should be the overarching principles governing a European energy data space?
- What government interventions or data standards are required to make specific use cases successful for achieving green transition goals?..(More)”.
