“Energy” has been one element of the development of human civilization, also a power for national industry, construction and economic development. The green energy has become the cornerstone in sustainable development to secure such energy supply but may accommodate opinions from controversial perspectives when this subject is discussed. This study develops an interactive big data system, which aims at aggregating data from Facebook, PTT, news, and provides an interactive interface for energy domain experts. The “interaction” characterizes the seamless integration between users and the system to construct the controversial issue sets of energy, which could be identified and established autonomously in this study. The approach using tags of the link in two controversial issues can help end-users effectively query on demand. The energy relevant issues can be fully aware and provided to the decision makers from the positive and negative viewpoints.
