DATA4ACTION Conference: Observatories for Energy and GHG, a strong support to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy

Data4Action

d4a-prog-bordeauxRegional and local public authorities design, implement and monitor Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs). The Covenant of Mayors initiative provides support at each stage of this process. However, the success of these tasks as well as the improvement of the SECAPs can be guaranteed only through the availability of energy and GHG data. Ensuring the regular exchange of data between the stakeholders of the energy transition is the challenge at hand. The Conference will propose:

  • A discussion between energy data providers on how to develop more advanced data collaboration models between municipalities / regions and data providers.
  • A showcasing of structured data exchanges and of examples on how this data is used for the development and monitoring of sustainable Energy and Climate action plans.

New interactive maps show Thermal resources available in regions

The EU-funded STRATEGO project recently published the Pan-European Thermal Atlas (PETA), an interactive map that shows data on the thermal resources available in any region as well as EU-wide thermal demand. PETA maps heat and cooling demand, the local density of both demands, available waste heat resources and the potential for renewable energy sources.
