Short Description:

CSEI’s main role in EDDIE is leading WP7. The objective of this work package is to analyse the enabling EDDIE Framework and AIIDA as data-sharing infrastructure from a multi-disciplinary point of view. This comprises scientific assessments and impact analysis of the project. To accomplish this objective, this WP comprises a multi-disciplinary and complementary team of energy, behavioural, and ICT economists and engineers. They will address the following sub-objectives:

  1. Examine the economic properties and commercial viability and possibilities of the data space and analyse the value proposition of the data space for energy users as well as for the energy industry.
  2. Carry out impact analysis of data access and usability from a human-centred and behavioural economics point of view.
  3. Analyse the regulatory framework relevant for the uptake of energy data-sharing infrastructures and identify options in policy and regulation to enhance the incentives for the key actors to use such infrastructures.
  4. Analyse security and safety aspects of alternative data-sharing infrastructure options.
