European commoN EneRgy dataSpace framework enabling data sHaringdriven Across - and beyond - eneRgy sErvices (ENERSHARE)

Project duration

01.07.2022. – 30.06.2025. (36 months)

Description

The ongoing energy system digitization is making available an enormous amount of data, paving the way for data sharingenabled cross-value chain services, which may contribute to system-level increased efficiency and hence facilitate the energy transition. However data sharing in the energy sector is lagging behind, mainly due to lack of trust, privacy breaches risk and business models immaturity.

Project objective

The overall vision of ENERSHARE is to develop and demonstrate a European Common Energy Data Space which will deploy an ‘intra-energy’ and ‘cross-sector’ interoperable and trusted Energy Data Ecosystem. Private consumers, business (energy and non-energy) stakeholders and regulated operators will be able to access, share and reuse, based upon voluntary agreements (or legal obligations where such obligations are in force): (a) Large sources of currently fragmented and dispersed data; (b) Data-driven cross-value chain (energy and non-energy) services and Digital Twins for various purposes.

Main activities

a)deliver a Reference Architecture for a European Energy Data Space, which hybridizes SGAM with IDSA and GAIA-X architectures, by bringing data value chain perspective into the energy one b) evolve interoperability, trust, data value and governance building blocks to TRL 6-7 IDSA-compliant ones, adapt them to energy sector, and deploy:

  1. Across-energy and cross-sector data enhancement technology enablers and standardizable interfaces and open APIs by leveraging on open Standards (e.g. ETSI Context Broker) and ontologies (e.g. SAREF
  2. Trust-related connectors, to ensure privacy, confidentiality, cybersecurity-preserving trust,sovereignty and full control of data
  3. Blockchain/Smart contract-enriched marketplace for data versus energy assets/services coordination, sharing, exchange, and beyond financial compensation
  4. Cross-value chain value-added services and Digital Twins, by leveraging on privacy-preserving federated learning

c)integrate and deploy them within a Reference Implementation of a European Energy Data Space, which will be demonstrated along 7 pilots and 11 intra-electricity, intra-energy and beyond energy use cases

d)co-designSSH-based consumer-centric business models for energy data sharing enabling data beyond-financial value creation and spreading along value chain

d)prepare the ground for the European Energy Data Space setup, through alignment with EU-level relevant initiatives (GAIA-X, IDSA, BDVA, ETIP SNET, BRIDGE), contributing to Data Space standardization and boosting a level playing field for data sharing.
