How can the national energy data platform help your business?

London Smart grid

Data is key for our energy system and our future Net Zero economy. There’s a new energy data platform coming that will allow improved visibility of your energy system and support current energy services whilst enabling innovative and disruptive ideas to grow and scale. 

Modernising Energy Data Access – Alpha Phase Demonstration of YODA Platform

The Modernising Energy Data Access (MEDA) competition was set up by Innovate UK and the Modernising Energy Data group to help develop the concept of a Common Data Architecture (CDA) for the Energy Sector. Siemens and partners are developing Your Online Data Access (YODA) solution to help solve the fundamental problem of exchanging digital energy information between data providers and data users.


We’d like to share our progress on the Alpha phase and seek your valuable feedback to help share the future of the solution.

About the Modernising Energy Data Access project

Overview of the Siemens YODA platform

Siemens, together with partners Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) and National Innovation Centre for Data (NICD), will develop a national energy data platform for Innovate UK’s Modernising Energy Data Access (MEDA) project. Siemens platform is called YODA – Your Online Data Architecture. This platform will enable better local energy management and support the drive to decarbonisation by providing a central energy data catalogue, an energy map of generation and demand, and an asset register for all new energy assets. 


If you are a grid or micro-grid operator; an energy app developer or energy innovator; an academic or other energy-interested organisation, we would like to hear from you. Tell us how you as energy/data users or providers are challenged by the current energy data landscape and identify what you need from a central energy data platform to aid your future technologies and services.

Energy providers, distributors, users and prosumers we'd like to talk to:
