  • 3. The century of big data
  • 4. Why is this not enough ....
  • 5. Data kept in silos ...
  • 6. ... or part of business models ...
  • 7. ... or not digitised
  • 8. ... and is it important for clean energy?
  • 9. We asked REEEP‘s project implementers ...Better access to (Government) Data would be important forthe following aspects: • Policy support • Business development • Market assessment/identifying potential for LED • Investment decisions/demonstrating viability • Support in project implementation • Encouraging cross-regional and sectional cooperation and communication
  • 10. Low emission transportation in JakartaIssue: Jakarta - many using fuel inefficient means of transportsuch as private cars, motorcycle and taxis Solution: Implement “trunk/feeder” transportation system Impact: Fuel savings of 130 mio l. petrol and 35 mio l. diesel annually, from passenger shifting to public transport and fuel conversion from diesel to CNG (1,8 mio tonnes CO2 reduction over 10 years)
  • 11. This project would benefit from open data• Currently they need to do most of their research on their own.• Finding geographic demographic data of the city would be useful – how is the population distributed along the bus lines, – what kind of people, – where they work etc.• Such data is potentially available, but is troublesome to get and is not in the right form.
  • 12. (Linked) Open Data can help us to ...... avoid replication and provide access to exisiting data... be able to concentrate on our own expertise... keep data maintenance to a minimum... create new knowledge! This is the power of open data!

  • 15. Standardisation and consitency is keyBased on our experience in establishing knowledge brokerportals we know:• There is a strong need to increase consistency when tagging climate and energy resources• We need to ensure the consistency of message being delivered to the public to avoid confusion using terms in different ways• This needs standardization of the used categories and tags
  • 16. Can we support that with an automated system ?
  • 17. Same Document document tagged: tagged: PVphotovoltaic Understanding synonyms & relations?

  • 19. Utilising the power of Linked Open Data
  • 20. A new tool to help with conistent tagging:The reegle tagging API (api.reegle.info)
  • 21. Unstructured Data
  • 22. reegle tagging API turns data into knowledge
  • 23. A file is sent …
