[OEO] Open Energy Ontology for Energy System Modeling published

OEO – Open Energy Ontology

The first major version (1.0.0) of the OEO has been released. I will try to collect and link important milestones here. Feel free to edit and add. Discussion on the ontology itself should be undertaken on GitHub.

Hi @ludwig.huelk

Sounds interesting and - based on a brief glimpse - relevant and important.

Looking at the OEO website I couldn’t not answer the following questions for myself. Can you help:

  • How do I know if this is relevant for me?
  • When should I use and apply this?
  • If I should use and apply this: At which stage of a project?
  • How do I apply this.
  • How do I get started?

I haven’t had any formal training on ontologies. Not sure about others.
Can you recommend and link a foundation laying resource?

Highly apprciated!
Best, Johannes

Useful and well written summary of the OEO here (noting that this is a preprint and currently under review):

  • Emele, Lukas, Hannah Förster, Johannes Frey, Ulrich Frey, Martin Glauer, Janna Hastings, Christian Hofmann, Carsten Hoyer-Klick, Ludwig Hülk, Anna Kleinau, Patrick Kuckertz, Till Mossakowski, Fabian Neuhaus, Martin Robinius, and Mirjam Stappel (15 June 2020). “The Open Energy Ontology — Preprint”.

Here is a newer version of the same paper:

Abstract: Heterogeneous data, different definitions and incompatible models are a huge problem in many domains, with no exception for the field of energy systems analysis. Hence, it is hard to re-use results, compare model results or couple models at all. Ontologies provide a precisely defined vocabulary to build a common and shared conceptualisation of the energy domain. Here, we present the Open Energy Ontology (OEO) developed for the domain of energy systems analysis. Using the OEO provides several benefits for the community. First, it enables consistent annotation of large amounts of data from various research projects. One example is the Open Energy Platform (OEP). Adding such annotations makes data semantically searchable, exchangeable, re-usable and interoperable. Second, computational model coupling becomes much easier. The advantages of using an ontology such as the OEO are demonstrated with three use cases: data representation, data annotation and interface homogenisation. We also describe how the ontology can be used for linked open data (LOD).
Keywords: Collaborative ontology development; Linked open data; Metadata annotation; Energy systems analysis
