Elia supports energy sector transformation and data centricity through open data portal

Published on

Elia Group is one of the top 5 leading electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) in Europe. The company produces 50 million data points every day. It is committed to driving decarbonization and meeting the European Union’s digital ambitions around opening and sharing data for the public good, looking to become data centric by treating data as a corporate asset and providing it to its multiple stakeholders in tailored ways.

After reviewing the market, Elia chose to work with Opendatasoft, as its platform provided the best match for its challenging requirements. After a nine month development period, its OpenDataElia portal was launched in July 2021.

We started to work with open data as part of our transversal shift to data centricity, and wanted to ensure we offered our stakeholders accessible, usable, and discoverable data. Opendatasoft was a good match for our ambitions, thanks to its central data catalog and advanced search functions to help with data discoverability.

To build Elia’s data platform and to deliver the components that will ensure it is a success for users, we needed a proven solution that has a strong track record with other utilities, combined with proactive, fast support. Opendatasoft is the perfect match, meeting the needs of our users around data quality, legal clarity and seamless availability. Positive feedback from our user community and the well-governed integration of Opendatasoft into our wider platform have more than exceeded our expectations.
