Atlantic CanadaEnergy Data Roadmap
BUILDING AN ATLANTIC CANADA ENERGY DATA ROADMAP
The Roadmap starts with a vision for an energy information system that collects data in a comprehensive manner and regularly reports on an aggregated basis for community energy and emissions inventories. The Roadmap is also guided by a series of values which include:
- The need for society to make informed and good energy and environmental policy, program and investment decisions, and measure success.
- The protection of personal information by requiring the de-identification of energy use data before public reporting.
- The right of consumers to decide if they want to share personal energy data, and enable them to do so in an informed, secure, and simple manner.
- Technology solutions that use common standards and operate with simplicity, clarity, and enhanced accountability for users and efficiency programmers.
- Technology solutions that improve operations.
- Regional and national cooperation and linkages to other information initiatives.
An Atlantic Canada energy information system that collects data
in a comprehensive manner and regularly reports aggregated information for community energy and emissions inventories; manages the data collected in a secure and private manner; uses the data to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of energy systems; and, enables consumers to access and share their individual data on an informed, voluntary basis to gain insights into energy use patterns for the benefits of themselves and society.
