Any data source, from Excel sheets to automated APIs can be aggregated, validated and verified in Prospect.
Prospect is an open source data platform for the energy access sector that allows you to customize data flows coming from ongrid, minigrid and offgrid sources. Brought to you by the Access to Energy Institute (A2EI) and GET.invest. Free of charge.
Prospect allows you to automatically aggregate data coming from different sources into one platform.
The relative contribution of ongrid, minigrid, and offgrid connections to the success of an electrification strategy is immediately visible. The silo approach which tends to separate ongrid, minigrid and offgrid data streams is overcome. Prospect also validates and verifies the incoming data.
Prospect enables you to see where exactly the different energy sources (ongrid, minigrid, offgrid) are available in your town/region/country. Any energy solution, including productive use appliances and clean cooking devices can be shown. Various metrics ranging from technical, maintenance data, impact and financial details can be visualized.
Displaying location and concentrations of energy solutions gives viewers an intuitive understanding of the current energy supply situation. Dashboards can be fully customized to cater to individualized information needs. Complex data is visualized to allow for data-driven decisions.
Prospect is typically connected to every energy solution it collects data on, thus allowing you to remotely monitor the systems from your desk. Both technical and payment data, for example, can be analyzed in real time.
Remote monitoring gives you a real time assessment of the energy solutions you are responsible for and allows you to intervene, e.g., by adjusting your financial, maintenance, or product development planning.
Prospect continuously and automatically enables you to report on, evaluate and learn from the performance of the energy solutions. Prospect transparently summarizes whatever data you would want to report on automatically.
Prospect can directly compute the efficiency, financial viability and impact of your energy solutions, thereby proving its effectiveness and helping you leverage additional funding. Reporting becomes an automated and 100% transparent process and does not require field visits anymore. Reporting becomes less costly while being more precise.
