- Despite an enjoyable evening at Tuesday's dinner that continued for some into the wee hours of Wednesday morning most delegates still made their way to the main hall early for the opening session of Day 2 which began with the announcement of Athens for the location of EDF 2014. The morning's keynote address came from Statoils' Knut Sebastian Tungland who stressed the need for speed of understanding of data when facing commercial deadlines. There followed a group of presentations on open data discussing legal aspects, the EC open data portal, and it's role in renewalbe energy. The session's final panel centred around the language technologies needed to interpret the masses of data accumulating.
