Policy Recommendations on improving Energy Data Sharing for Effective Energy Planning at Sub-National Levels
The recommendations are based on the outcomes of roundtable discussions held at EU and regional levels within the framework of the IEE-DATA4ACTION Project. They were derived by identifying gaps in existing legislation and defining key elements that could be introduced in future or revised legislation in order to facilitate the exchange of energy data.
At a European level, recommendations can inform the review of Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency that focuses on Articles 1, 3, 6, 7, 9-11, 20 and 24. They also consider Directive 2009/28/EC on renewable energy, Directive 2010/31/EU on energy performance of buildings, Directives 2009/72/EU and 73 on internal markets in electricity and gas, Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of personal data, Directive 2007/2/EU on Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (Inspire), Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 on energy statistics.
The effective transposition of the above listed EU directives is key for improving data access for sustainable energy planning. Additional measures are listed below that can be implemented by Member States directly in national legislations, in order to facilitate access to energy data for sustainable energy planning.
