Access to the latest high quality information on renewablesRenewable energy is power generated from infinite sources, such as wind or solar power. Conventional energy is generated from finite sources, such as natural gas or fossil oil., energy efficiencyUsing less energy/electricity to perform the same function. Programs designed to use electricity more efficiently - doing the same with less. and climate changeClimate change is a lasting change in weather patterns over long periods of time. It can be a natural phenomena and and has occurred on Earth even before people inhabited it. Quite different is a current situation that is also referred to as climate change, anthropogenic climate change, or ... is fundamental to the acceleration of the clean energy marketplace, facilitating investments, promoting new legislation and regulations, and broadening interest and knowledge in the sector. Although the world has virtually all of the data it needs to manage energy and climate transformation, this information is not easily accessible to those who need it most, including policymakers, investors, and project developers.
This webinar will inform on how opening up and linking data (Open Data), and categorising the data automatically through use of consistent terms can help dissolve barriers to gaining access to information. Government data on energy consumption and production, as well as supporting data such as traffic, population and infrastructure, is already in the public domain. Making it all available for public re-use is a first step that can unleash whole new waves of development. In parallel, using consistent terminology to classify online resources, whether public or private, will improve collaboration, grow knowledge, and foster innovation.
