Electricity suppliers are increasingly using real-time data to visualize the European energy network in order to carry out their daily work and it is open to all. Der Tagesspiegel gives an overview through an interactive map.
A new tool known as Electricity Map provides free, real-time data on European energy consumption and CO2 emissions. It is provided by the start-up Tomorrow, created by the Dano-French computer expert Olivier Corradi.
The map is online since September and comes in the wake of five months of development. Corradi initially pursued this idea out of sheer curiosity, while working at a computer start-up that deals with artificial intelligence.
However, he is more interested in the question of how to transpose Europe’s heavy energy requirements for renewable sources.
So, it brought together a small team of experts in energy and information technology to achieve its objectives.
