The Impact of Open Data

Did you miss our open data hangout? View it here.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to our Google+ Hangout on the “Impact of Open Data.” If you weren’t able to attend, a recording of the discussion is available above. We hope to offer many more Hangouts with Energy Department and private sector energy experts, so check out for upcoming events.

In case you missed it, "open data" means data that is not only available, but also accessible. The value of open data is empowering building owners, business people, and others to make better decisions more quickly and more accurately than ever before. If you’d like to learn more about open energy data, visit for company profiles, resources and information on working with Energy Department data sources.

If you have additional questions about this discussion, you can submit them by emailing, posting in the comments on the Energy Department's Facebook page or tweeting @ENERGY using #askEnergy
