Access to data and the data infrastructures in the energy sector will be upgraded

Access to digital data and information in the energy sector will be improved and harmonised. The data infrastructures necessary for this are being built and expanded. Networking of different datasets is supported and the coordination of the participants in the energy sector is being improved; this improves market efficiency, capacity and security of supply. Data infrastructures which are accessible as openly as possible support the reduction in energy consumption, the use of renewable energies, making production and consumption more flexible and enabling the coupling of energy systems. Transparency and the active integration of consumers will be improved. Access to data and the data infrastructures does not depend on whether proprietary or open-source software is used.
