Deep Ventures has developed Energy Open Piazza, a software platform designed to address key obstacles for the transition to sustainable energy systems in the built environment.

Landlords, investors, developers, and property managers require a reliable standard and engaging process to assess the cost/returns of microgrid projects to unlock the growing market of flexibility.

Energy Open Piazza aims to leverage behind the meter data interoperability for both simulated and real world scenarios, allowing companies to forecast efficiencies, and evaluate competing solutions for the implementation of real world systems.

When used as a simulation tool, Energy Open Piazza creates a tailored scenario describing the elements needed for successful project execution, while also generating a business case document showing the path to profitability.

The aim is to speed up the process to obtain financial support and boost installations of microgrids.

Energy Open Piazza aims to provide the fabric needed for interactions between services and devices in heterogeneous energy infrastructures, allowing firms to widen the scope of data-driven decision making and supporting new tools in an ever changing landscape.

Energy Open Piazza also guarantees data ownership and security, Deep Ventures says, while establishing the basis for strategic flexibility opportunities and future-proofing scenarios by promoting a standard interface for components across the energy value chain.
