Pixie’s Energy Data Hub is a tool which visualises the energy landscape within a mapping platform. Initially developed to cover the three “core counties” – Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire – various partners have allowed us to expand the mapping to cover the rest of East Anglia, Scotland, and the North East.
Many visualisations nowcover all of GB. The energy landscaping layers include generators (of various sizes and technologies), network assets and availability ratings, battery storage locations, consumption data, CO2 emissions, local network flexibility requirement areas, EV chargers, district heating schemes, and energy efficiency metrics. We have also included many wider metrics, including supplier switching rates, supplier market share, flooding risk, deprivation indices, fuel poverty and sites for housing and economic growth.
The tool has already proved valuable in helping create regional energy strategies, and will be of use to planners, developers, energy suppliers, networks and many other energy stakeholders. We are currently further developing the tool to increase the functionality and enable even more sophisticated information to be accessed by subscribers and partners.
