Regional workshop – How do we measure results and monitoring SEAPs?

Data4Action

On the 11th of March participants from municipalities and regional authorities in Norrbotten, Sweden discussed;

What has been the biggest challenges and successes when implementing SEAPs? How do we measure results and monitoring SEAPs? Tools and methods?

Some of the conclusions from the workshop are that it is important to get the politicians interested and engaged in the work with SEAPs to get the best result. Municipalities and regional authorities find it harder to measure consumption than production within the municipality due to statistics and existing tools. The municipalities are asking for a tool that helps them to easier access data on energy use and CO-emissions. Such a tool is under re-development by Nenet, the “Energy Loupe inventory tool”. This tool was presented at the workshop.
