Wish List Dataset: A Real Time Residential Energy Dataset
U.S Energy Information Administration, we have a wish. Could you make the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS) real time?
Sounds impossible? A daunting task? It's not!
Over open API's (format agnostic) you could drive change in the industry. Allow utilities to rethink the customers homes. Gain actionable insight that is already available but not being used.
Imagine the possibilities of combining energy usage, demographic, location and open data related to a customers premise. You already know it because of the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS). Lets make it real time.
If you create a platform that enables developers access to this aggregate of data, creativity and cost savings will follow.
Substation optimization based on granular understanding of premise info on a circuit by circuit basis.
A deep understanding of the customers premise to support the relationship and services marketed
The ability to identify a inefficient home and help the customer save money.
All in real time.
