From OpenEnergyData Wiki

The OpenEnergyData Wiki provides information about energy efficiency and renewable energy-interfaces for data and services access in the cloud and on devices.

It is from the community for the community. Your first step to help extend it may be the getting started guide.

The goal of the wiki is to provide product developers and product managers with an overview about available data interfaces outside the Department of Energy to ease product planning. It may save some time for software developers searching for data on the way.

The wiki is operated by EnergieSchweiz.ch, an entity of the Department of Energy www.bfe.admin.ch.

Dive deeper into the topics covered

The OpenEnergyData Wiki provides special data sections for buildings, transport, efficiency, HomeAutomation, renewable power and its optimization, devices and products and some others.

For industrial purposes there is also a section to help understand industrial processes.

Discovery of other Content

You may find information through the following pages.

  • The complete set of data and service pages.
  • Only the data and services that come as a cloud-API.
  • Dive deeper based on your topics of interest. Find there for example information and links to respective data and services that are relevant for buildings, power, transport, efficiency, devices and products.
  • Check out the different categories that are used to bring some order into the information.

  • File based data that is accessed through FTP or compareable means.
  • Full fledged Cloud-APIs usually based on http and REST.

Level of information

For managers it shall ease getting an overview of available data. It shall support product managers in the ideation process. It simplifies the process of their product design or the definition of the specific requirements they want to meet. In this process they can understand the involved cost for access to data.

Developers may find first overview about the available data and links to the detailed repositories. Addressed APIs are specifically Cloud- and Device-APIs.
