The Transparent Cost Database Enables Energy Innovation

As energy researchers, the Department of Energy datasets are the foundation of our work. Choosing the most valuable among them is like being asked to choose the most valuable book from a library – the value comes from the library itself, not the single book. Yet, no dataset in recent memory has proved more important than OpenEI.gov’s new Transparent Cost Database (http://en.openei.org/apps/TCDB/). This database displays ...more »

Excel Add-in to Pull in EIA Data

Most who visit the EIA, do so to download data into a spreadsheet. For those researches, analysts, and businesses that don't know VBA but wish to retrieve EIA data, we have to go online and re-download it or manually input data each time it's updated- weekly/ monthly/ annually. The EIA's charting feature is helpful, many prefer to manipulate the data themselves, in their own spreadsheets, which is quite time consuming ...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 »

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 »

Offshore wind development is of rapidly growing interest on the US Eastern seaboard where potentially strong wind energy resource is located in proximity to high priced energy demand centers. However, there is little historic, robust, publicly available wind resource data to guide developers and investors in making informed decisions about the specific siting of offshore wind farms, the wind farm layout, the turbine equipment ...more »

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.
