Friday 12 December 2014, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

The Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

For our 12 December lecture... Can open data help bring us clean, local energy?

Open data holds the potential to open up the energy market in the UK. Small, renewable generators produce almost 15% of the UK's electricity, but they often lack the industry knowledge to get the best rates in selling their power onto the grid. Open Utility is a company that uses open data to help people buy and sell renewable energy. James Johnston, CEO of Open Utlity, will explain their plans to create a peer-to-peer energy marketplace.
