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.
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.
Cooperation between RAEE and SPL Energies Reunion in Data4Action Context: RAEE (Rhônalpénergie-Environnement) is the regional energy agency of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, in charge of the energy and GHG observatory at regional level.
New steps in replicating ANERGO energy observatory: ALEA and AEEPM experience transfer
Established at county level Alba Local Energy Agency – ALEA is a non-profit organisation and an authority intended to participate in the sustainable development of Alba county by improving the current situation.
Energy data is crucial for identifying trends in the economic priority sectors to target energy policies and to ensure energy efficiency improvements and increased renewable energy deployment. These measures can then be built in to sustainable energy policies and plans, and their national and local implementation progress can be monitored periodically.
The document summarizes policy recommendations for EU and National Policy Makers on Improving the Access and Collection of Energy Data for sustainable energy planning by sub-national public authorities.
