Report of existing data and databases as additional to new data collection and formulation: H2020 ECHOES Deliverable D2.1

    Research output: Book/ReportReport

    Abstract

    The overarching objective of ECHOES (Energy CHOices supporting the Energy union and the Set-plan) is to unlock the policy potential of an integrated social science perspective bounded by central socio-cultural, socio-economic, socio-political, and gender issues that influence individual and collective energy choices and social acceptance of the energy transition in Europe. The internal working document D2.1 of Workpackage 2 aimes at introducing existing databases on social science and humanities (SSH) that are relevant for low carbon energy transition. The working document D2.1 supports the development of an open access ECHOES database, that in turn collects and synthesises existing data relevant for the focus of ECHOES in addition to the new data that will be generated during the ECHOES project.
    According to analysis presented in this report, the nature of SSH data can be described as fragmented, dispersed, consisting of varying technical implementations, varying languages, as well as of varying formats. Furthermore, providers of data portray a large variety. Particularly, national statistical agencies are mentioned frequently while ministries are another typical source. The spectrum of other data providers ranges from research institutes to private companies to NGOs and industry organisations. The reliability of classified data sources is not self-evidently homogenous between all different sources. This issue should be considered in the development of the database of ECHOES project
