As energy resources have gradually become more limited and more expensive, proper maintenance of industrial equipment has become a significant yardstick in measuring competitiveness and environmental impact. For a long time, the status quo with regard to industrial maintenance involved ignoring the asset (equipment, machinery or infrastructure) as long as it was functional in order […]
The lack of the overall understanding of the impact of energy-efficient investments has made it difficult for policymakers to integrate it into their policymaking process. There is a need to gather evidence on the benefit of energy efficiency in ecological and socio-economic terms. These are the challenges that EERAdata will address over the next three […]
Fragmentation in policy making and poor investment in Energy Efficiency: how can data analytics help?
Energy Efficiency (EE) has come to be recognised as the ‘first fuel’ for energy. EE is seen as one of the three pillars of the UN initiative ‘Sustainable Energy for All’ and a major resource to reverse climate change and meet sustainability goals. However, it has been estimated that two-thirds of the economically-viable EE potential […]
