This report outlines the components of the open access database to be built in ECHOES. The points discussed include the user interface design, functionalities required, data content as well as different alternatives regarding the technical implementation of the database. An updated action plan, setting the milestones for developing the running solution, is presented as a conclusion. Key technical choices of the database are studied based on preliminary tests and coding of a relational (SQL) database structure, allowing flexible integration of research data that will be accumulated towards the end of the ECHOES project. The tests have been mainly built around the requirements set by the characteristics of ECHOES results and/or their draft versions, most notably, the multi-national survey implemented in 31 European countries. A user interface is designed, and it is considered to interact with the database through a map-based user interface with data presentation options based on main survey results and selected Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as basic components. The KPIs will be selected based on selected SET Plan actions, such as Action 3.1 on energy consumers.
