Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities that take place all over Europe to campaign for a secure energy future in Europe. EUSALP Action Group 9 – energy efficiency and renewable energy, supports the initiative of the European Union and organizes the 2nd experts workshop “EUSALP Energy Observatory” as an EUSEW Energy Day. The workshop will take place on the 6th of June in Innsbruck and focuses on energy data collection in the macro-region.
Reliable energy data is indispensable for decision-makers to formulate, implement and verify the effectiveness of energy policies and measures. At the macro-regional level, too, energy data can support the implementation and the monitoring of a long-term cross-border energy strategy for the Alpine Region. The implementation of the observatory project requires networking a series of actors as well as collecting and standardising relevant data. As a first step, EUSALP Action Group 9 members organize a series of workshops with energy data experts to exploit the feasibility and define the framework of a future EUSALP Energy Observatory. The setting up of an energy observatory for the EUSALP is a strategic initiative of the Action Group and is supported by the Tyrolean EUSALP Presidency 2018.
During the workshop, the experts will elaborate on the strategic objectives of the observatory, talk about energy data processing and harmonizing tools as well as the governance framework conditions that are needed to set up the observatory.
