The Data4Action Conference “Observatories for Energy and GHG, a strong support to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy”

Energee-Watch

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 as well as the improvement of the SECAPs can be guaranteed only through the availability of energy and GHG data. Ensuring the regular exchange of data between the stakeholders of the energy transition is the challenge at hand.

The Conference “Observatories for Energy and GHG, a strong support to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy” will propose:

  • A discussion between energy data providers on how to develop more advanced data collaboration models between municipalities / regions and data providers.
  • A showcasing of structured data exchanges and of examples on how this data is used for the development and monitoring of sustainable Energy and Climate action plans.

The DATA4ACTION Conference will be held on the 26th of January 2017 from 9.00 to 11.00 am and from 14.00 to 15.30 pm, at the Palais des Congrès de Bordeaux (Avenue Jean Gabriel Domergue 33300 Bordeaux [FR]).

Open Discussion on the Clean Air and Climate Protection Software

Local governments can use the Clean Air and Climate Protection Software (CACPS) to develop greenhouse gas and criteria air pollutant inventories for government operations, or to create a community-wide emissions estimate. CACPS also allows users to forecast emissions and create an emissions reduction plan.

Using data to help Kent identify business opportunities and threats in the low carbon economy

Kent County Council is one of 9 partners participating in an Interreg IV A 2 Seas-funded project called Fusion which aims to grow the economy of the 2 Seas region through ‘eco-innovation’, without increasing the ecological footprint of the region. As part of the project Kent County Council will support the development of new sustainable business models in Kent and the expansion of the low carbon, environmental technologies sector through developing effective policies and strategies and targeted business support packages.
