MESHARTILITY – Data challenges survey for municipalities and energy suppliers launched
A survey has been launched inviting local governments and energy suppliers to detail how they deal with data sharing – in particular energy consumption data needed for the purpose of establishing local community Baseline Emissions Inventory (BEI) and energy assessments. The aim is to identify and solve existing challenges by exploring win-win solutions for municipalities and utilities. Follow this link to the survey.
The survey is the first step of the MESHARTILITY project, which aims to develop solutions and tools to facilitate exchange of energy data between energy utilities and local authorities assessing local greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and aiming to address GHGs through increasing energy savings, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy. These solutions and tools will help cities and signatories of the Covenant of Mayors to develop their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs).
MESHARTILITY addresses energy data issues including data “ownership”, access, quality and update of the data and approach (if any) to top-down and bottom-up data correlation. Municipalities, energy utilities and their associations can benefit from this project through engaging and sharing their knowledge and best practices, and by learning from their peers and experts.
