The open data tool empowering your energy transition
Accelerating the energy transition is an urgent priority for Europe, with scientists indicating that keeping global temperature rise to under 2°C is becoming increasingly unlikely. A series of necessary but ambitious environmental targets have been set by the EU Green Deal; nevertheless, these reforms are needed across the energy sector along with further research to better understand how to facilitate this change. Therefore, for Europe to achieve these goals, 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.
This is why European-funded projects like EnerMaps are so important. Already its expert-driven data selection process has provided a vast starting point with 50 different datasets. With this amount of data, and a platform for researchers to effectively access and share knowledge, progress in the energy transition can be made.
EnerMaps Open Data Management Tool aims to improve data management and accessibility in the field of energy research for the renewable energy industry. The EnerMaps’ tool accelerates and facilitates the energy transition offering a qualitative and user-friendly digital platform to the energy professionals. EnerMaps project coordinates and enriches existing energy databases to promote trans-disciplinary research and to develop partnerships between researchers and the energy professionals.
What They Say
Dynamic communication aiming at the right target audience leveraged the impact of EnerMaps. Additionally, we adapted quickly from a physical conference outreach to an entire digital communication strategy – REVOLVE mastered the challenge.
