Observatory – Technical Chamber of Greece Energy Observatory
Municipalities have limited or no access to energy consumption data of public buildings, public lighting, transport, the residential and tertiary sector, as well as energy produced from renewable energy sources. Data from these sectors are essential, especially in energy planning. Up to 2015, there were no national, regional or local energy observatories in Greece to facilitate access to energy data and support local energy planning. Therefore, the creation of a new energy observatory was imperative for assisting municipalities in the development and implementation of local sustainable energy plans.
The new observatory was formally established in August 2015 and is incorporated within the Technical Chamber of Greece’s (TCG) structure. TCG is a national public legal entity and a professional organization that serves as the official technical advisor of the Greek state. TCG is also a Covenant of Mayors (CoM) Coordinator; thus, committed to support municipalities in energy planning. Hence, the observatory will support municipalities throughout Greece.
