Event description
A workshop on Energy Data Best Practice – Discoverable, Searchable, Understandable

About this Event

What does data best practice look like? How can we help potential users discover, search and understand data? Can metadata make data more accessible?

Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) is working with BEIS, Ofgem and Innovate UK to develop best practice guidance for energy data and we need your input!

The maximum value of data can only be realised when potential users are able to discover it, search for related datasets and understand the content of data. The Energy Data Taskforce made recommendations for the industry wide adoption of a lightweight metadata standard and the development and deployment of a Data Catalogue to help address some of these issues.

Within this workshop we will test and develop data best practice guidance which enables potential users to find, compare and use data more effectively whilst minimising burden on data publishers. In addition, we will test and develop best practice guidance which enables metadata standards to be consistently deployed across a number of organisations in a way that benefits individual organisations and makes economy wide data discovery, search and understanding more efficient.

Many of the data challenges faced in the energy sector are not domain specific so some of the concepts and solutions already implemented in other sectors and innovative organisations are likely to be transferable or useful examples of existing best practice. Individuals and organisations with experience of making data accessible or standardising metadata within or across organisations should attend this workshop.
