OpenLV – Your Local Electricity Data

The OpenLV project, hosted by Western Power Distribution and funded by Ofgem’s Network Innovation Competition, is making electricity data from the low voltage network ‘open access’ for the first time ever.

Open LV is looking for people to come up with novel ideas for using this data, either in the form of an app or in any other way. This includes community groups who will be helped to design apps that result in energy savings and local substation ‘load management’.

Applications to become one of the 3-4 groups/communities to participate in the trial are now open until the 22nd of January 2018.

For the selected communities, local consultation and app design workshops will take place in spring 2018, with software development taking place over the summer. Trials of the apps will officially launch in September 2018.
