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.

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 »

Green Button 2.0 - "Best Idea for An Existing Dataset"

Green Button is a great way to get customers, developers and energy providers engaged and excited about the usage of energy. It enables change by allowing access to a dataset previously unavailable. But what if we could make access to this data faster. dataCapable is proposing a change. Push the API to the edge. We'd like to see it at the meter although we understand it's going to take a lot of work with the metering ...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 »
