Interactive Dataset - Sustainable Energy Initiatives across Europe
The international ENERGISE (European Network for Research, Good Practice and Innovation for Sustainable Energy) research team, coordinated by the National University of Ireland Galway and funded by the EU's Horizon2020 programme, has conducted a systematic classification of over 1,000 existing sustainable energy consumption initiatives (SECIs) from 30 European countries.
As the lead on this ambitious task, colleagues at Aalborg University in Denmark have just launched these data in an open access online database. The database informs users about the content, scale and objectives of SECIs that specifically address final consumption, as well as providing an assessment of how the challenge of addressing excessive energy consumption is understood. The database and interactive map will be an invaluable resource for energy practitioners, researchers, community groups or anyone seeking good practice examples of energy initiatives from all over Europe. SECIs have been divided into four overall categories for how they approach the challenge of climate change and the need for energy use reduction.
