Meshartility – Recommendations out of the 2nd EU Roundtable
Access to energy consumption data is vital to establish sound baseline emission inventories and identify areas with the greatest potential for reducing energy savings, enabling effective energy planning. The MESHARTILITY project is working to advance energy data access.
The 2nd European Roundtable under the Meshartility project took place at the Committee of the Regions, Rue Belliard 99-101, Brussels on the 10 March 2015. It was the last roundtable in a series of European-wide and national roundtables in the work program.
The core of the roundtable was the presentation and extensive discussion of improving the collection of data.
Particularly the best practice examples for ‘Central data collection by voluntary agreement’ as implemented within the DATA4ACTION project and for ‘Data provision by the Distribution Services Operator direct’ provided by Enel Distribuzione S.p.A. in Italy were very well received.
Reservations were expressed regarding the practicality of introducing ‘Central data collection through legislation’, particularly at EU-wide level, and the ‘messiness’ of signing individual ‘Bilateral agreements between energy suppliers and local authorities’.
