OpenLV web app goes live!

17 October 2018

Seven community groups and organisations are taking part in innovative trials for OpenLV, by being given access to real-time data on local electricity networks. Through these trials, a piece of software called ‘LV-CAP’ has been deployed in selected substations to make it possible for substation data to be collected and transmitted in real time to be used in supporting a range of community projects.

Data from LV-CAP can be displayed to communities using a web app developed by CSE’s Andrew Gonnet with input from the participating groups. The app allows each group to configure settings to meet their particular needs and make use of the substation data with an aim of raising understanding and awareness of electricity use in their communities.
