This section is dedicated to the ELISE Energy & Location Applications (formerly known as Energy Pilot). The Energy Pilot activities started in 2015 under the EULF action and are now continuing under the ELISE action.
A feasibility study “Location Data for buildings Related Energy Efficiency Policies” was concluded in 2015 under the EULF action. It confirmed an approach to support the data monitoring requirements of the Energy Performance and Buildings Directive (EPBD), the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and the Covenant of Mayors (CoM) initiative, based on the re-use of INSPIRE components.
The study made an initial analysis of the data flows relevant to EPBD, EED and CoM, identified relevant INSPIRE data themes, and carried out an initial mapping exercise. Because of the variations in available data and the need to link data at different administrative levels, there is a need to properly combine data of different nature (e.g. calculated vs. measured, static vs. dynamic). As these policies are linked to energy savings actions, validation and interaction with building owners and industry is important in the overall methodology.
A pilot project has been mobilised, with an initial kick-off workshop held in Ispra from 24-26 November 2015 with participants from BE, DE, DK, ES, EL, IT, SE, TR and UK.
The pilot activities involve a series of cities and regions to demonstrate how an integrated data approach can be established for planning, implementation, monitoring and reporting for the multiple policies and initiatives, considering energy performance of buildings, energy consumption of buildings and energy production at a local level. This is being done through:
- adoption of common structured data models (extending some INSPIRE core data models)
- use of common data access mechanisms (INSPIRE Network Services)
- re-use of (parts of) datasets for different planning, implementation, monitoring and reporting purposes
- data access agreements to use the relevant data
- development and application of relevant methodologies and models to fill data gaps
- use of both centralised and distributed ICT infrastructures which make accessible the data needed to fulfil planning, implementation, monitoring and reporting requirements
Starting from the end of 2016, the initial phase of the pilot is being implemented and tested through a series of use cases, involving different stakeholders (public authorities at local and regional level), businesses working in the energy sector and citizens (building owners).
