Webinar – Future Development of Climate, Energy & GhG Observatories – 5th of October 2016, from 10:00-12:00 (Brussels time)

The Covenant of Mayors in collaboration with Data4Action will host a webinar which provides a unique opportunity to listen to, and partake, in a discussion in relation to one of the Covenant of Mayors latest developments in Climate and Energy. The experience of several regional Greenhouse Gas (GhG) observatories, as well as the potential to apply this experience at local level will be discussed. This will be followed by a brainstorm on the orientation and future development of an Energy and GhG Observatories, for all to partake. In addition, climate change adaption measures such as indicators, baseline emission inventories and the development of Sustainable Energy Climate Action plans (SECAP) will also be discussed.

Agenda:

  • Introduction, by Kjell Skogsberg – Energikontor Norr
  • Presentation of the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, by Ciarán O’Sullivan, from the CoM Office
  • Presentation of Climate vulnerability analysis at the territorial level, Anne Luminet Rhônalpénergie-Environnement & ORECC
  • Presentation of the Energy, GHG and climate Observatory of the Hauts-de-France, Julien Dumont – CERDD
  • Open discussion on:
    – The integration of new thematic (such as land planning, ..) could be taken in account in the Energy and GHG Observatories
    – The need to develop a Climate “branch” within the Energy and Climate Strategy

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. Using […]
