The fifth DATA4ACTION project meeting and an experience sharing workshop was successfully held on the 25th and 26th of May 2016 respectively, at the Coral Hotel in Paleo Faliro.
DATA4ACTION, a project co-funded by the "Intelligent Energy Europe” programme of the European Commission, aims to facilitate public authorities’ access to reliable energy data. The project is mobilizing energy data providers and public authorities throughout Europe to set up win-win data exchange collaboration models that support the successful implementation and monitoring of sustainable energy planning. These models range from simple bilateral data exchange cooperation agreements, right through to the creation of regional level “one-stop shop” energy data structures that support regional and local public authorities with the collection, processing and exchange of energy data.
The President of the Technical Chamber of Greece (TCG), Georgios Stasinos, opened the meeting with a welcome speech. The important role of TCG on energy related issues and on supporting the implementation of local and regional energy planning was highlighted, along with TCG’s active participation in European and national initiatives, such as the Covenant of Mayors.
