3th of April 2020 a consortium led by the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL) kicked off the EERAdata project. The goal of the project is to develop, explore, and test a FAIR and open data ecosystem for low-carbon energy research data, where FAIR stands for F-indable, A-ccessible, I-nteroperable, R-e-usable.
Data-driven energy research produces large amounts of data. However, the majority of databases don’t allow for re-analysis and lack integration of interdisciplinary and complex data. Tapping the enormous potential of energy data is crucial for informed decision-making, accelerating the market uptake of research results, and thereby guiding the successful transition to a clean energy system.
EERAdata is run by Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL), İzmir University of Economics (IUE), Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA), Central Mining Institute (GIG), and European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). Project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 883823.
