Territorial Energy Data for Planning and Energy-Climate Action

This document reviews data on potential for energy management, renewable energy development and recovery, and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. It provides information on the regulatory framework, methodological elements, recommendations for conducting a study of the potential of the French territory, as well as community testimonials.  It was produced by Club STEP (Synergies for Energy Transition through Planning) – which has been working since […]

Climate Alliance EcoRegion software tool, EU

The tool is intended to provide municipalities and regions with a basis to establish their CO2 profile and assess their local and regional climate strategies. It is based on software called ECORegionsmart specifically developed by the Swiss company Ecospeed for computing local CO2 and energy balances.It can be ordered online and used immediately as an internet service. After a small amount of data has been entered, ECORegion calculates a first initial balance, using default values from a database built on national statistical data with some computing added. The computations use factors like fleet average consumption, emission factors, etc.

Outcomes of the Data 4 Action Conference

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