The webservice-energy.org platform is an effort carried out by the center Observation, Impacts, Energy (O.I.E.) of MINES ParisTech / ARMINES and also from the SoDa Team toward the Energy and Environmental Community..
The webservice-energy.org platform hosts a collection of Web Services offering data and applications in Renewable Energy. The exploitation of Renewable Energy sources such as solar and wind energy requires accurate knowledge of the resources and their availability -in space and time- as well as accurate forecasts in the different phases of an energy system life cycle.
Web services are a efficient means to access to up-to-date knowledge by achieving connections, and facilitating exchange of data, applications, and information between actors. The Web services are made available to the community by various providers on a for-free access or restricted access basis.
Several services are based on W3C standards (WSDL) and SOAP protocol. Others are based on OGC Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Processing Service (WPS). Cataloging is ensured by an OGC Web Catalogue Service for the Web (CSW) hosted on the Webservice-energy Catalog.
You can access, search and discover hundreds of Energy and Environmental related resources by connecting to: Webservice-energy Catalog
The webservice-energy.org platform is recognized as a GEOSS Community Portal. It has been registere in the GEOSS Registry and consequently all resources deployed under these platforms are available in the GEO Portal.
Several graphical clients exploiting and/or combining the webservice-energy.org resources with standard remote resources have been developed. Examples of such graphical clients have been achieved:
