Live Energy Potential Map
Created by Barend Dronkers.
I'm a Engineer in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I work at Metabolic. Previously, I've worked at Shell, Engineers Without Borders, TU Delft, Environment Canada. I earned a M.S. from TU Delft.
A Live Energy Potential Map for Municipalities that shows layered energy potentials based on a combination of static and dynamic open geo-data sources. The goal is to launch an interactive web-service/application that allows users to select combinations of 'sustainable energy interventions' on the map in order to make use of the energy potentials. Think of an energy model linked to a map, using real world data, and linked to economic models.
I'm making it so that municipalities (governments/departments/planners), residents, and local businesses have reliable and real data to make conscious decisions about what type of sustainable energy interventions they should invest. Policy makers can use the map to tweek policies to efficiently use energy. Small Business can connect their energy flows based on excess and deficit of energy flows. Residents can evaluate distributed energy technology investments.
I am well versed in the sustainable energy technology landscape, but my GIS and web-application development knowledge is THIN. I'm looking for developers/web-programming experts to help me realize this project using Open-Source tools.
Release prototype web-application that uses open geodata for small urban environment, with limited interactivity.
Test prototype in Amsterdam with my local connections to guide the development of the tool.
Learn how to interface with urban farming (food) and water systems maps.
