"Wishlist" Datasets

Current, forecast, and historic generator output/capacity

Utility companies may have opposite objectives than the consumer. A utility may be content to generate electricity during peak hours, at high emissions, and sell to consumers at high rates. Consumers may be driven by different objectives. They may buy smart appliances which already respond to time-of-use pricing or emergency demand response signals from the utility. A new electricity generation web service directly from ...more »

Dataset of Datasets!

My ideal dataset would be a complete dataset containing all of the Department of Energy Datasets. In looking for data for this contest it was difficult to navigate the many different websites and data formats currently used by different branches of the DOE. To be able to fully use the rich data available it would be very helpful to have a single dataset that contained each of the other datasets in a consistent and coordinated ...more »

Voluntary Submission of Greenbutton Data

We propose creation of a publically available greenbutton data set by allowing utility customers to voluntarily upload relevant data along with key parameters related to building(home or business). The data set would include five relational databases as follows. 1) building description – a) location [zip code and or census tract]; b) year constructed; c) size; d) number of stories; e) structure type [wood frame, structural ...more »

Better Green Button Data Accessibility

Currently access to Green Button data is very restrictive which limits its intended benefits and consumer market penetration. 1. LIMITATION: - The user has to login to their utility company's website with their account login to access the Green Button data. This limits any automated solution by 3rd party providers which is required for real world applications. Otherwise, in almost all cases, the solution fails since ...more »

Comprehensive Data on Wind Farm Production By Site

Our dream dataset: open data on the actual realized performance of all wind farms in the US, and/or any data it holds on actual measured wind resources at different sites, in any format the DOE chooses. We believe this data could be captured from Treasury/DOE records on production tax credit reporting, which were required of all US wind farms over the past few years. With this data, the wind industry in general, and ...more »

Macro and Personal View of Energy Usage Across Functions

The average person has a siloed view of energy consumption. There is currently no a way to compare across different types of energy use. This makes it difficult to have a solid understanding of where and how to make an impact. It also leaves a large gap in personal and public understanding of energy consumption. There are some basic questions that we, the general public, cannot answer about energy usage. For example, ...more »

Leveraging Natural Gas Data

Improving the Green Button Initiative: The Green Button Initiative has made great strides in making electricity consumption more transparent, but consumption of natural gas is a blind spot. As a result, end-use natural gas data should be incorporated into the Green Button program to provide a clearer perspective on energy use. This strategy would leverage and complement existing Green Button data and ultimately provide ...more »

A Real Time Residential Energy Dataset - "Wish List Dataset"

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 ...more »

Green Energy Tracker

Renewable energy production has been rapidly growing in the US in recent years. Energy consumers have opportunities to learn about renewable energy, but they do not have access to data about the actual renewable energy production or usage. Access to such data may help create awareness of when renewable energy is most available to consumers and when is the peak of energy usage occurs in general. (More details about application ...more »

Community Energy Use Mapping

City's and communities wishing to plan and implement community-scale energy reduction, energy efficiency, and clean energy system (ex. district energy, community-scale solar, etc.) deployment lack information on their community’s energy use. Efforts in NYC and San Francisco-using benchmarking laws for data collection-have been able to spatially understand the use of energy resources (ex. elec, ng, fuel oil) throughout ...more »
