The IEE-funded project Meshartility is helping 74 municipalities across 12 European countries to collect relevant energy data for the development of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs). Accessing detailed data on energy production and consumption in their territory is a crucial first step for Covenant signatories to identify which are the sectors where the energy transition efforts should be concentrated. Municipalities however still face many challenges in this respect: collecting data in the appropriate format (aggregated by sector, yet disaggregated enough to also understand user groups’ energy behavior); getting utilities and energy providers to agree to share these figures despite concerns over data protection, fear of competition, etc.
