The Apex Clean Energy Challenges space

Apex Clean Energy is a US-based utility-scale renewable energy project developer, owner, and operator. Our Asset Management Operations department operates 2 GW of wind and solar plants. The Apex Clean Energy Challenges space brings together researchers with real data and challenges provided by Apex Clean Energy.
WeDoWind Challenges are concrete tasks set by Challenge Providers that are solved by Solution Developers:
  • Challenge Providers receive diverse state-of-the-art solutions to their problems from international teams, increased visibility and contact with the research community.
  • Solution Developers get access to relevant problems and data from the industry and get visibility within a vibrant international research and teaching community.
WeDoWind Challenges can also be accompanied with other activities to foster collaboration such as lectures, events, workshops, webinars, Q&A sessions.
The first challenge in this space is the Challenge: FAIR Information Schema for Wind Turbine SCADA Data. The goal of this challenge is to develop an open-source information model for our wind turbine IIoT data that we can apply within our SCADA systems. This information model will define a template for structuring common SCADA data properties and will be graded on FAIRness.
We see SCADA data as a foundational scope for the information model from which we can exploit immediate value; by formalizing definitions of data at the source, we can better ensure interoperability of those definitions in data usage downstream. We envision leveraging this information model more broadly in operational analysis over time, so an additional goal of this challenge will be to define a process for extending and maintaining the information model.
