Data innovation – the combining and processing of data in novel ways to create value – is emerging as a salient topic for Information Systems research. It is an important phenomenon across empirical domains, including efforts to provide more sustainable energy production and consumption. Practically, we want to know how processes of data innovation can be used to transform the residential energy market in a sustainable direction. In this paper, we therefore ask: How is data innovation achieved to provide sustainable solutions within the residential energy domain? We investigate this question through a qualitative longitudinal case study of a born digital energy platform company that has transformed the household energy scene in Norway in the latter years. Through this study, we contribute with knowledge on data innovation, the processes that enable it, and more specifically, how data innovation can enable sustainable solutions contributing to achieving the UN SDGs.
