Big data idea

Hi United States of America.

 

You cuzzies should compile your demand by us suburb and location type and capacity of your plants and their marginal cost. use this data to do some sweet network optimisation so your low and high marginal cost plants are located optimally to reduce your transmission losses.

 

Although all you guys are pretty smart and I imagine of already do this.

Thinking of Embodied Energy as a new form of currency

When we take out a loan for a house the most important thing we care about is the total cost and how fast can we pay that back. However, when it comes to things around us people seem to be completely unaware of how much energy it costs to make it. Embodied energy is defined as sum of all the energy required to produce goods or services. The concept can be useful in determining the effectiveness of energy producing/saving ...more »

Team Smart Washa - best idea existing dataset

We love the electric utility rates database. It allows customers to see the cost per kWh. If the market decides to go to time of use (TOU) then we have a pretty neat idea to make this database more valuable. If you could build this as a dynamic platform that updates in real time developers could use this dataset to create smart machines, like a smart washer machine. We When the price is right. The device turns on. ...more »

Real Time Pricing Extended to the Retail Energy Market

One of the biggest problems with the electric industry today is that it insulates the consumer from the "pain" of the wholesale energy market. This should at least be offered as an option to consumers. There is no technical barrier to prevent the implementation of a retail real-time price market to consumers. This should be offered to them as an alternative to the other tariff options they are given. Fifteen states also ...more »

Home Energy Score API

We propose a Home Energy Score API to allow home buyers and renters to know the energy performance of a home as part of the purchasing or rental decision. The home energy score should be available on home purchasing sites like MLS, Realtor.com, and Zillow and on apartment rental sites like Rent.com, Airbnb.com and Apartments.com. This information should be as easily accessible as the miles per gallon rating on vehicles ...more »
