About HData

We make life easier for professionals tasked with managing and understanding energy regulatory data.

HData is the only RegTech company delivering streamlined compliance and business intelligence to the U.S. energy industry. Our mission is to digitize the interface between the public and private sectors. We automate manual processes for people who comply with regulations, enforce regulations, and use regulatory data.

Our Story

Hudson Hollister founded HData in 2018. Hudson previously worked to transform many government regulatory regimes from disconnected documents into open and standardized data. He founded the Data Coalition and the Data Foundation, the nation’s leading open data industry organizations and drafted the DATA Act of 2014 and the GREAT Act of 2019. In 2015, Hudson’s advocacy team began working with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to transform energy regulatory reporting into standardized data, using the XBRL data format.

HData entered the energy regulatory data market in 2020. We sought to combine compliance and business intelligence solutions on a single platform, allowing energy accountants, business leaders, and regulatory professionals to easily manage and understand the information that energy companies report to regulators. Co-Founder Yuval Lubowich created a development team with decades of experience in building simple, intuitive, and flexible applications on standardized data.

In 2021, our company was selected to participate in the Techstars Alabama EnergyTech Accelerator, the world’s only technology accelerator for early-stage companies focused on the utilities sector.

HData closed an oversubscribed $3.1 million seed investment round, led by Hyde Park Venture Partners and co-led by Firebrand Ventures in December 2021. That same month, we announced a new partnership with Alabama Power Company to develop HData Insights, the next generation of energy regulatory business intelligence.
