JRC presents European Energy Efficiency Platform
On 5 April 2016, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform (E3P). This beta platform is intended to function as a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities, and as a place for information retrieval.
The platform provides three collaborative tools available to the energy efficiency community: a Data Hub, a community-driven data collection hub and a tool to elaborate and visualise datasets; a WikEE for experts’ collaboration including sharing of knowledge, data and expertise; and a community that allows experts to organise themselves into working groups where specific topics can be discussed. The final version of the platform will be publicly accessible in the coming months.
Energy efficiency is seen as a contribution to moderating energy demand, reducing energy imports and cutting on pollution. It is one of the five pillars of the European Commission’s Energy Union strategy on secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy, and aims to be improved by at least 27% by 2030, as a contribution to meeting the goals of Europe's climate and energy policy.
