Data , a lever for the ecological transition

The City of Paris has set itself the ambition of being a carbon neutral city by 2050. The energy lever forms a major line of action with the objective of halving the territory’s consumption through the renovation of buildings, and using only renewable energy, 20% of which will be produced on Parisian territory. The Air Energy Climate Plan, approved in 2018, is the detailed roadmap for this and proposes 500 measures. Among them, the creation of a public energy data service (SPDE) which represents an innovation in public policy that aims to improve the sharing of data and the collaboration of key players around energy related subjects. This is now feasible due to new possibilities made available on digital tools and by the regulatory framework of the Law on Energy Transition for Green Growth which now renders more flexible the distribution and use of energy data. This note gives details of the “SPDE method” which is based on the gathering and cross-referencing of different types of data and on the creation of digital applications which meet the various needs of local authorities, institutions, property owners and citizens.  The first energy geographical information system (ENERSIG), is presented as a follow on to the note. In addition, a map collection accompanies the note, made up of eight maps to help understand the energy situation in Paris better. It will be completed at the end of 2021 and will be put online as a public dataviz.
