BD4NRG: Big Data for Next Generation Energy


Advancements in next-generation energy technologies will drastically transform how the world generates and consumes power. Starting with the decentralisation of the energy system, it is necessary to establish a fair and secure engagement between big data and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. To achieve this, there is a need for more standardisation of big data architectures for smart grids and regulatory frameworks that do not facilitate actual data sharing. The EU-funded BD4NRG project will develop a reference architecture for smart energy to align various architectures together with an interoperable AI-driven big data analytics framework. This will enable cross-stakeholders data-driven services and full interoperability of leading-edge big data technologies with smart grid standards and operational frameworks.
