John Gorman was invited to represent SolarNetwork at the Energy Datapalooza at the White House in Washington, D.C. for the launch of some major innovation in the open data space. The main idea of the Energy Datapalooza was to open up the huge stores of datasets that the government has via web services, and allow entrepreneurs and innovators to create new products and services from this data.

We really enjoyed the modern approach that U.S. CTO Todd Park and EDI director Ian Kalin took towards software development - there was a ton of enthusiasm in the audience attending the event, and you could just sense the broad impacts that this endeavor is going to have on energy policy. It was cool, disruptive, highly advanced, and also really fun!
