Data sharing survey highlights challenges

02 September 2013

A survey on data sharing practices that was conducted as part of project MESHARTILITY highlighted the challenges faced by municipalities when trying to access energy consumption data. In particular, the kind of energy consumption data needed for establishing local community Baseline Emissions Inventories (BEI) and energy assessments can be difficult for municipalities to access.

Thousands of municipalities, municipal associations, supporting organisations to the Covenant of Mayors, energy suppliers and energy industry associations in the project countries were invited to take part.

In total 245 municipalities and their associations and 53 energy suppliers and their associations responded in some form to the survey. The survey closed in August 2013 after being open for more than nine months, and the results highlighted that significant challenges still exist in terms of data access and data quality.

The findings of the survey have been summarised in a report that will be made public. They were found to be very useful in focusing on the main challenges and addressing these by reaching agreements with energy suppliers how data sharing can be improved by finding win-win solutions.
