19 November, Turin: Promoting Sustainable Energy – Data quality to support local action
The metropolitan city of Turin will host on the 19th November an international event under the Covenant of Mayors and the European project DATA4ACTION. During this event, a number of institutions and researchers will bring to light a few examples of success stories of the support of local action to promote energy sustainability. Thousands of local and regional authorities are in fact involved in Europe and Italy, through initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors, in long-term sustainable energy planning to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption. In this context, the collection of data and their quality are often an obstacle to start an effective and convincing energy transition. The project DATA4ACTION, co-funded by the European Union, foresees that 12 energy observatories, including that of the metropolitan city of Turin, develop and strengthen their own course of action to overcome those barriers.
Venue: Metropolitan City of Torino Auditorium, Corso Inghilterra 7

Open Discussion on the Clean Air and Climate Protection Software
Local governments can use the Clean Air and Climate Protection Software (CACPS) to develop greenhouse gas and criteria air pollutant inventories for government operations, or to create a community-wide emissions estimate. CACPS also allows users to forecast emissions and create an emissions reduction plan.
