Operator • Organizations that manage the electricity network • Like the “switchboards” for the electricity network, which has been called “most complex machine ever devised by man.” • For PEI the network is managed by the NBSO: the New Brunswick System Operator
am very grateful that you have found a way to record the load and wind power generated in PEI. Do you by any chance have a spread sheet of these values? I am looking at using storage to balance wind ﬂuctuations and was hoping to try and using the real load and wind data to accomplish that.”
web- connected, touch-screen computer • Uses the JSON version of the PEI load and generation data • Provides simple feedback: red - bad time to use energy (no wind, fossil) yellow - average time to use energy green - good time to use energy (high wind)
of wiring together devices and data. • No programming required. • Runs locally on your computer, and is accessed using a web browser on your computer. • The Social Consumption Project Raspberry Pi computers use it to read and upload electricity and water meter data to the web.
will use your open data for (maybe they will make music from electricity). • Reduce as many barriers as possible to easy, painless access to data: ﬁnd the right format(s) and put the data right on the web, with a URL. • “Eat your own dogfood” – develop systems that consume you own open data.
