Abstract
In this paper, the idea of an integrated large scalable big data platform for the energy industry as a contribution to EMIS will be described. For this, use cases are identified that could bring forward a sustainable energy consumption and that faces the challenges of a fluctuating energy production. Use cases and requirements for such a big data platform have been elaborated with help of interviews with experts from science and industry. Furthermore existing approaches e.g. from German OFFIS institute were taken in consideration. To strengthen the approach, a software prototype of the data platform was built based on Hadoop and evaluated with the German software company thepeaklab. The prototype collects data of multiple smart meter and realizes the identified use cases for producer and consumer.
