Superblocks, or large city-blocks with some degree of energy autonomy, have yet unanswered challenges related to data utilization. Within superblocks, a service-based data ecosystem could provide benefits in the form of higher-level control applications and flexibility for the energy community. In this paper, we use open data platforms and tools, namely FIWARE and Eclipse Arrowhead, to find a system design for energy data services. The research questions relate to recognizing what features and functions are required from data platforms to provide appropriate solution, and which of them are supported by the studied data platforms. The proposed solution is then tested with a prototype implementation in limited scale to gauge its viability. We conclude that FIWARE and Arrowhead complement each other and when used in unison fill most of the requirements established in this paper.
