  1. 1. www.smespire.eu www.sunshineproject.eu www.geosmartcity.eu Energy Mapping survey On June 2014 an online survey has been launched* to collect information about the need for automatic large-scale assessment of building energy behaviour, based on “location” information (geodata) available from public registers (e.g. cadastre, urban planning data etc.). The following slides show the results of the survey. * http://snipurl.com/energy-mapping-survey
  2. 2. About Respondents The first part of the survey focuses on some general characteristics of the respondent organisations.
  3. 3. 118 respondents from May 31st and July 16th 2014 Total 118
  4. 4. 95% from Europe
  5. 5. 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 Pattern of responses 31-May 7-Jun 14-Jun 21-Jun 28-Jun 5-Jul 12-Jul
  6. 6. Is your organisation a private company or a public body? 37% Private company 63% Public body
  7. 7. How many employees are working in your organisation? 25% 28% 29% 6% 13% Less than 10 Between 10 and 49 Between 50 and 99 Between 100 and 250 More than 250
  8. 8. About Energy and Energy Mapping The goal of this part is to analyse the knowledge about the main topics related to energy demand and consumption at urban level, with information about energy at building or building block level. Buildings are responsible for 40% of total EU energy consumption and are often the largest energy consumer and CO2 emitter in urban areas.

  9. 9. "Energy Density Mapping" In 2012 the Canadian Horizon Utilities Corporation gave a very interesting presentation on using energy density mapping to help take the guesswork out of identifying customers on whom to target conservation and demand management (CDM) programs. The part of the smart growth initiative that Horizon saw as relevant was energy usage reduction. In Calgary, the city where the smart growth approach was initiated, energy density was mapped using data provided by the gas and electric utilities. The data was aggregated at a relatively course level of granularity and expressed in terms of gigajoules/hectare. In Ontario the Ontario Power Authority supported several municipal pilots that that took a similar approach and mapped energy usage at a fairly course level of aggregation. Horizon decided that to identify the high energy usage customers on which to target their CDM programs they needed higher granularity, specifically at the building and property level, expressed in units of kWh/m2.

  10. 10. Is your organisation familiar with Energy Density Mapping? 64% 36% NO YES
  11. 11. Do you think that an Energy Density Map could facilitate the understanding of energy usage and help to better define actions for the energy usage reduction? 98% YES
  12. 12. Could you please describe how do you think “energy density maps” could help your organisation or your city? 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% Urban planning and regulations Energy performance regulations Information and training Coordinate policies with other levels of authority Promote energy audits Financial incentives and loans Increase the rate of refurbishment Demonstration buildings Energy taxes Promote successes Other
  13. 13. Is your organisation aware of the following Directives? 0% 20% 40% 60% Directive 2010/31/EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2012/27/EU Energy Efficiency Directive Directive 2009/28/EC energy from renewable sources Directive 2009/125/EC Ecodesign Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 Directive 1989/106/CE. Construction Product Directive
  14. 14. Has your organization any instrument to monitor the energy usage or to evaluate the energy need? (energy facility manager, energy certification etc.) 32% NO YES 68%
  15. 15. Is your organisation aware of the Covenant of Mayors? The Covenant of Mayors is the mainstream European movement involving local and regional authorities, voluntarily committing to increasing energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources on their territories. By their commitment, Covenant signatories aim to meet and exceed the European Union 20% CO2 reduction objective by 2020. http://www.covenantofmayors.eu/ 64% 36% NO YES
  16. 16. Is your organisation one of the signatories of the Covenant of Mayors? [public bodies only] Signatories represent cities that vary in size from small villages to major metropolitan areas such as London or Paris. Within a year following their signature, Covenant signatories commit to implement Sustainable Energy Action Plans on their territory, with the aim of cutting CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. http://www.covenantofmayors.eu/ 32% NO YES 68% 37% Public body
  17. 17. Do you think that an "energy density map" could be useful for the Monitoring of the Emission Inventory? In order to monitor the energy consumption / CO2 emissions data effectively and adapt the action plan accordingly if necessary, Covenant signatories are encouraged to compile Monitoring Emission Inventories on a regular basis. Recommendation is to do this on a yearly basis, and the minimal requirement in the context of the Covenant of Mayors is to do it at least every 4 years. http://www.covenantofmayors.eu/ 97% YES
  18. 18. About GeoICT and INSPIRE This part of the survey is related to the knowledge and skills within your organization related to GeoICT and the INSPIRE directive. GeoICT refers to the branch of the Information and Communication Technology sector dealing with geospatial information (geomatics). INSPIRE is an European Directive to establish an infrastructure for spatial data information in Europe.
  19. 19. What are the three main geospatial activities in which your organization is involved? [Ranked] 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% Use of spatial data General IT consultancy Data modelling Education Development of client applications Implementation of network services Transformation of spatial data Rank 1 Rank 2 Rank 3
  20. 20. Is your organisation aware of the INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) Directive? INSPIRE is based on the infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the 28 Member States of the European Union. The Directive addresses 34 spatial data themes needed for environmental applications, with key components specified through technical implementing rules. This makes INSPIRE a unique example of a legislative “regional” approach. http://inspire.ec.europa.eu/ NO YES 32% 68%
  21. 21. What is the extent of knowledge and understanding in your organization about the following aspects of INSPIRE? The INSPIRE Directive requires that common Implementing Rules (IR) are adopted in a number of specific areas (Metadata, Data Specifications, Network Services, Data and Service Sharing and Monitoring and Reporting). These IRs are adopted as Commission Decisions or Regulations, and are binding in their entirety. Objectives 40% 35% 30% 25% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% Main principles Conceptual framework Metadata Regulation Data and Service Sharing Regulation Monitoring and reporting obligation Regulation Interoperability of spatial datasets and services Regulation Network Service Regulation Very low Low Average High Very high

  25. 25. After 46 days, on July 16th 2014, the number of submitted respondents of the “Energy Density Mapping” survey was 118: • More than one-third of them are from public bodies, while the others are from private organisations • Big organisations (more than 250 Full Time Equivalent employees) are almost 30%, while more than half are from micro (<10) and small (10-49) organisations • Almost two-thirds are already aware of “Energy Maps” • 98% think that “Energy Density Map could facilitate the understanding of energy usage and help to better define actions for the energy usage reduction”, mainly through: - Urban planning and regulations - Energy performance regulations - Information and training • …
  26. 26. • … • The majority of respondents do not has any instrument to monitor the energy usages or needs • More than 60% are aware of the Covenant of Mayors; among the sole “public bodies” the percentage is higher (and one-third of public bodies are indeed signatories of Covenant of Mayors) • Almost everyone (98%) consider “Energy maps” as a useful tool for the Monitoring of Emission Inventory, mainly in relationship to “municipal buildings, equipment and facilities” and “residential buildings” (both 80%) • Directives on Energy Efficiency (2012/27) and EPBD (2010/31) are known by less than half of respondents, while other directives and documents related to energy are almost uknown • …
  27. 27. • … • Two-thirds of respondents are “users” of geodata (45% said they are using geospatial) and almost half of them are also involved in “transformation/processing” or “modelling” of geodata • The percentage of organisation aware of the INSPIRE Directive is quite interesting: more than two-thirds of them know its principles, goals and regulations, but … • … few of them (less than one-third) are already involved in the implementation of some INSPIRE-compliant components, mainly focusing on “data modelling” and “view services” • Among the 34 INSPIRE Data Themes, “buildings” are the most used (more than 58% of respondents) together with “land cover” (46%), “land use” (47%) and “cadastral parcels” (45%)

  29. 29. www.smespire.eu www.sunshineproject.eu www.geosmartcity.eu The questionnaire has been designed on the basis of the smeSpire project experience (http://www.smespire.eu/). The smeSpire project (http://www.smespire.eu/) was an FP7 Support Action focused on the INSPIRE implementation in relation to business opportunities for the Geo-ICT European SMEs. In 2013 more than 300 SMEs had been surveyed and results have been published online at the beginning of 2014. In January 2014, the smeSpire project defined formal liaisons with Sunshine (http://sunshineproject.eu/) and GeoSmartCity (http://www.geosmartcity.eu/). Thanks to these agreements, the smeSpire assets (tools and methodologies) can be applied for studying and analysing public and private sectors involved on “energy” and “location” topics. About methodology of the smeSpire study is available at: http://www.smespire.eu/published-by-smespire- the-first-study-on-the-geo-ict-sector-in-europe/
