Best Practice on Clean Energy: Florian Bauer

  1. 1. A new key portal for Open Energy Data
  2. 2. reegle re-loadedConsidering fast development in the web world, reegle has recently undergone atotal make-over to establish itself at the forefront of energy and climateinformation once again: 1. Reegle is publishing all its data in an open format for free re-use 2. Reegle is consuming Open Energy Data from the LOD cloud 3. Reegle is the first energy portal to enter the LOD cloud 4. Reegle constructs the most extensive thesaurus on RE and CCD 5. Reegle offers comprehensive country energy profiles by merging authoritative data 6. Reegle has had a design make-over to reflect its top-of-the-league status 2
  3. 3. Open Data?WHO?Governments and officialagencies have pledged to maketheir data publicly available freefor 3rd party re-use. WHY? • More transparency • More efficient public service • Better use and re-use of information • New combination of data HOW? creates more value • As raw data • Using W3C standards • In open and standard formats • Human AND machine read-able • Resource Description Framework (RDF) • Reference-able URIs 3
  4. 4. Linked Open Data! 4
  5. 5. What benefits?• Less replication (offering same datasets in different places)• Encouragement to re-use existing datasets• Clear which datasets are providing similar / same information• More innovation because datasets can be put in a new context and lead to interesting applications• Put information in context and thereby create knowledge 5
  6. 6. reegle as LOD producer/consumer• – well established quality information gateway• More than 220,000 users a month• Intelligent clean energy search including over 3,000 sources• New portal launched in 2011Now available for external free re-use in Linked OpenStandard W3C standard on : • over 1,700 clean energy stakeholders worldwide • extensive glossary enriched with DBpedia linked data definition (thesaurus) • project outcome documents, country policy reports and DBpedia country description 7
  7. 7. 1. Clean Energy Searchreegle’s clean energy search is a unique tool to find high quality information onclean energy related topics, searching over 3,000 authoritative sources. Based on reegle’ s thesaurus: • Refined search • Related search • Auto-complete 8
  8. 8. 2. Country Energy ProfilesAs a reegle mesh-up, the country energy profiles provide a comprehensive set ofenergy-related information on over 200 countries including:• Contact details of key stakeholders• Overview on policy and regulations• Links to project outcome documents programmes and tools• Statistical data visualised charts• Maps of renewable energy sources 9
  9. 9. 3. Catalogue of actors and stakeholdersreegle’s catalogue of actors and stakeholders ( ) contains information on and linksto over 1700 ministries, initiatives, partnerships and organizations involved in renewableenergy and energy efficiency. 10
  10. 10. 4. Energy and Climate Change Glossaryreegle’s extensive glossary ( ) based on the thesaurus describes more than 1500 termson energy and climate compatible development and offers:• Definition and synonyms for each term• Links to related, broader and narrower terms• Visual browser showing how a term is semantically connected - symbolizing the scope of a concept or technology• Information from other sources like Wikipedia 11
  11. 11. Integrating reegle‘s offers all free datas sets to be queried and used through the SPARQLendpoint: 12
  12. 12. data.reegle.infoThis free of charge service includes:• Datasets in RDF to guarantee machine readable formats• Widgets and wordpress plugins for easy integration and many added benefits such as automated tagging based on thesaurus• Detailed instructions on developer’s portal 13
  13. 13. DemosYou can access the following resources for demonstration• LOD based country profiles:• LOD based glossary:• LOD based Actors Catalogue:• Clean Energy Search:• data & developer platform:• PoolParty demozone for extraction:• PoolParty Semantic Search demo: 14

  15. 15. Information gateway for renewable energy and energy efficiency ”Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves or we know where we can find information upon it”.
