Why the energy transition calls for a decentralised approach to data

Now that the energy sector is in full transition, there is a pressing need for a secure and efficient way to exchange data between an ever-growing number of market participants. One illustration of this need is the redispatch process: the dynamic adjustment of power feed-in from power plants to avoid or eliminate congestion in the network.

In Germany, a new law called the Netzausbaubeschleunigungsgesetz Übertragungsnetz (NABEG), aimed at accelerating the expansion of the cross-border high-voltage power line network, mandates the inclusion of all energy-producing units of 100kW and upwards in the redispatch process by October 2021.

INNOPAY’s Douwe Lycklama and Karl Illing have written a blog (in the German language) on the topic of data and ‘Redispatch 2.0’. In it, they argue that future-proof data exchange will require decentralised data infrastructure which is based on common agreements (known as an ‘afsprakenstelsel’ in Dutch) relating to both technical and non-technical aspects. They advocate that this scheme should be co-created by the market actors and be supported by open and neutral data governance.
