Empowering the energy transition through FAIR and open data with the EnerMaps data management tool.
Wednesday 20 October | 11.00 am to 12.00 pm | Webinar
Accelerating the energy transition is an urgent priority for Europe. By 2050, the EU Green deal targets include at least a 55% reduction of GHG emissions. Further research is required to better understand how to facilitate this change. That’s why accurate, open-source data is a priority to provide scientists and energy experts with the information needed to protect our planet’s future and accelerate the energy transition.
The EnerMaps H2020 project started in April 2020 with the aim of centralising, improving, increasing and ensuring the quality of data in the energy field by creating a user-friendly platform that is open to everyone and based on the principle of FAIR data.
As part of the EUSEW Sustainable Energy Days, this workshop will give an overview of the existing challenges and initiatives created to contribute to the energy transition and support decision-making among energy professionals. By increasing efficiency among energy professionals, EnerMaps will improve Europe’s competitiveness.
This workshop is directed towards the intended final users of the EnerMaps platform/tools: academics; public administrators; policy–makers; and industry professionals (energy planners, experts and consultants, research and development professionals, data providers and social innovation experts).
The session will include a demonstration of the tool from a public partner, a researcher and an industry point of view.
