INSPIRE Energy Pilot
A feasibility study “Location Data for buildings Related Energy Efficiency Policies” was concluded in 2015. 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.
