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.

The Data Access Guidebook for Sustainable Energy Action Plans has been released

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 Data Access Guidebook for Sustainable Energy Action Plans has been  developed for:
  • Public Authorities that are seeking better access to local, accurate energy data within their territory for use in sustainable energy planning;
  • Energy Planning Facilitators wishing to support the development of advanced collaboration models between public authorities and data providers such as a Regional Data Centre or Energy Observatory;
  • and Energy Data Providers willing to play a positive role in the development and implementation of Regional and Local Energy Policies
