The European Energy Transition Conference is the main annual meeting of local energy transition stakeholders: elected representatives in charge of energy, climate plans or planning, heads of local authority departments, businesses and civil society. Every year, they analyse the main trends at work behind societal changes and the challenges faced by local authorities. Participants take an active part in the event; over 100 workshops, forums and laboratories are organised in parallel sessions to present concrete projects and share experiences.
In order to better understand the changes at work, the 2017 edition of the Conference will illustrate these trends with European examples and will encourage discussions on the challenges of defining new ways forward for territories and mobilising resources.

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 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.
