Collaborating in energy data exchange

Welcome to Data 4 Action


Energy data access can be challenging for many actors because of data ownership, commercial sensitivity, the lack of accuracy or resource. Data 4 Action, by identifying transferable models of collaboration, explores ways to improve the access of public authorities to energy data for a better implementation and a better monitoring of Sustainable Energy Action Plans.

The general purpose of Data 4 Action is the establishment of long-term data exchange models in sustainable energy planning, through a cooperation between public authorities and energy data providers. Long term collaboration models will be implemented through bilateral data exchange cooperation agreements and with the development of twelve regional observatories, representing more than five thousand municipalities.

Data 4 Action puts an emphasis on 4 activities: it improves conditions for data exchange, it mobilizes key actors and facilitates their cooperation through the creation of new observatories and it involves local authorities in the implementation and the monitoring of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans.
