MFW13 hosts five cases for the teams to work on. These cases come from several organisations that have a near future problem, they want to have worked on from a media, ICT and arts perspective. You can download the case in PDF and below you find a summary, the team presentations and the pecha kuchas that can be used for promotional purposes.
“Liander” manages the energy distribution network in a large part of The Netherlands. It has a responsibility to society to provide transport of natural gas and electricity, at a low cost. Liander is thinking about future innovations, but is limited in doing so because of regulations.
Liander wishes to explore how to make better use of the data Liander has, through Open Data. Liander has lots of data, but is not allowed to use this data in applications due to the above mentioned legal limitations. Nevertheless, this data could be used by third parties in applications, for instance to facilitate the energy transition towards a more sustainable energy future.
With Open Data, Liander ventures into unchartered territory for itself and its customers. Will its networks remain as reliable when data about them is made public? Will this lead to a faster and better energy transition and will it create new possibilities for society as a whole?
As a result of the Media Future Week Liander likes to see a number of concepts and demos of applications using open energy data, as well as a roll-out scenario for these applications to specific target groups. In addition, it would like a step by step plan describing which datasets to roll out when. Via www.liander.nl/opendata, Liander will offer several datasets to inspire and develop your concepts and demos.
