Apathy and ignorance of personal data among the public is leading to the compromise of democratic principles. Highly technical skills and very large data stores are needed to extract, analyse, understand and act on personal energy data. There are unnecessary technical and commercial barriers to the openness of personal data related to energy consumption. This has led to uncontested markets and unfulfilled user needs. In short, users lack agency in their data – even if they can ‘download’ data, they have no way to look at, use, or understand it. This is just as bad as if it were never downloaded. We consider this a form of de facto data lock-in by default and needs to change to ensure openness and market development.
