On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
Energy and Location
The Energy and Location group has been created as a follow up of the workshop Spatial data for modelling building stock energy needs, held at JRC-Ispra on 24-26 November 2015 as an informal network to take part in further discussions and actions.
The workshop was organised by the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) - Digital Earth and Reference Data Unit and the Institute for Energy and Transport (IET) - Renewable and Energy Efficiency Unit of the European Commission Joint Research Centre.
The main objective of this workshop was to share experience in data collection and methodologies to support energy efficiency policies and scope a possible pilot to establish a harmonised approach supporting EPBD, EED and COM using INSPIRE as a ‘location’ framework.
The outcome of the workshop are available in the proceedings Spatial data for modelling building stock energy needs.
It was agreed that the pilot study envisaged in the JRC Energy and Location project should focus on issues of: scaling (from building to building stock), data requirements and treatment (including anonymization and uncertainty), connecting databases by conversion and control routines. The list of the use cases will be reported soon.
