On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
Background report providing guidance on tools and methods for the preparation of public heat maps
This report provides guidance on the structure and methods for preparing of a map of the national territory, identifying heating and cooling demand points, district heating and cooling infrastructure and potential heating and cooling supply points.
Three best practice guidelines have been prepared by JRC on how to: (1) assess the economic energy efficiency efficient potential at the national level, (2) perform installation level assessments, and (3) create heat maps, following the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) Article 14.
