The benefits of open source distributed intelligence. The ground-breaking project that’s making local electricity data openly available.
The ground-breaking OpenLV project made local electricity data openly available to businesses, universities and community organisations, unleashing a wave of energy innovation across the Western Power Distribution (WPD) network in the Midlands, South West and Wales. During the now complete OpenLV trials, the project provided groups with the opportunity to develop their own apps, allowing them
to leverage their local network data to directly benefit
OpenLV also provided a proprietary software platform to securely host and deploy these apps across the Low Voltage (LV) distribution network. As a result, an app could provide services to meet the needs of communities, while contributing to national ambitions to create a Net Zero carbon emissions future for every community.
