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]).

Three of the types of gases discovered are chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), the compound found in aerosol sprays and refrigerator coolants that created holes in the ozone layer nearly 30 […]
