The digitalisation of the energy sector enables higher levels of operational excellence with the adoption of disrupting technologies. The Energy Big Data framework of the modern smart energy networks provides an ideal ecosystem for knowledge exploitation from data. PLATOON aims to deploy distributed/edge processing and data analytics technologies for optimised real-time energy system management in a simple way for the energy domain expert. The data governance among the different stakeholders for multi-party data exchange, coordination and cooperation in the energy value chain will be guaranteed through IDS based connectors. PLATOON will develop a COSMAG-compliant reference architecture for building and deploying scalable and replicable energy management solutions that contribute to increased renewable energy consumption, smart grids management, increased energy efficiency and optimised energy asset management. The PLATOON architecture and components are valuable for different stakeholders of the energy sector value chain, starting from the electricity suppliers, passing through the distributors, the aggregators, the ESCos until the End Users. PLATOON will be validated in 7 pilots of 5 countries that provide real Energy Big Data cases; it resorts to existing European standards and initiatives for managing the pilots’ data, for the access, models, interfaces, governance and sovereignty. PLATOON will facilitate the technology transfer into the market by a well established tendering process through Open Calls; it will reinforce the European efforts for modernisation of the European electricity grid, because it focuses the attention to new smart grids services through data knowledge exploitation. Finally, PLATOON will offer access to cheaper and sustainable energy for energy consumers and maximise social welfare.

TIB is the leader of the work package for dissemination and communication of the project. Furthermore, we develop the Big Data management techniques that will enable the ingestion, transformation, and integration of Energy Big Data.
