Digital Energy Lab

Our Digital Energy Lab will enable management of energy data from smart buildings and communities.

We are currently working on building a digital energy lab that will be able to sample and collect data from the Danish energy system and manage it through our energy data warehouse. The lab is designed to be a big data platform using Casandra, Kafka, and Spark software from Apache Software Foundation; recognized for its scalability and performance. This platform will give researchers, students, and industrial partners access to a unique collection of real time data management for research and innovation.

  • Real time data collection
  • Real time data streaming
  • Access rights management

The lab also includes a high performance computing (HPC) cluster, which enables us to analyse more advanced data in much shorter time and thereby expands the capabilities for developing and testing new digital energy solutions.

  • Calculations on large scale electrical networks
  • Analysis of vast data on electricity markets

We plan to have the Digital Energy Lab completely in place by 2021. Still, we urge our customers and collaboration partners to contact us for relevant testing and demonstrations as several energy data from different living labs and smart communities will be stored continually throughout the process.
