hi Chris, I am in touch with the person in charge of the open data project at ENEL.
I am sure they will appreciate proposals, ideas, etc.

It can lead to new forms of collecting "economic" data (open and crowd-sourced) that can hopefully make more accurate accounts of global markets (we need it, don't we?) - Imagine to empower projects like opencorporates with open data sources directly from corporations.

Some examples could be: information about natural resources provided by the oil industry, the power and communication grids, ships logistics, ecc.
