The INSMART methodology was developed in the INSMART FP7 Smart City project. The objective is to use a scientifically sound approach in developing Sustainable Energy Action plans a city level. The methodology covers all the energy consumption sectors within a city (buildings, transport, municipal buildings, other uses) and local energy generation (solar water heaters, PV systems etc).
The booklet is a result of a project "Knowledge to warm at home". Following the requirements of the EU directives and national needs, recently energy poverty has been recognized as a growing problem in Croatia. There are several levels of work on its reduction. Booklet was a tool helping the Croatian county most affected by poverty, as well as the resulting energy poverty. Civil society organizations active in this county expressed willingness to deal with this problem but lacked capacities to resolve it.
"Energy data is crucial for identifying trends in the economic priority sectors to target energy policies and to ensure energy efficiency improvements and increased renewable energy deployment. These measures can then be built in to sustainable energy policies and plans, and their national and local implementation progress can be monitored periodically.
The Data Access Guidebook for Sustainable Energy Action Plans has been developed for:
