Best Practices in Gathering and Using Energy Data for LEDS Development

April 2014

Accessible, reliable, and up-to-date data are critical in Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) energy planning. Unfortunately, policymakers often struggle with significant data gaps. This webinar presented an overview of the importance of energy data collection, best practices, and strategies for linking data collection and LEDS development processes. Valuable insights into data collection and use were presented by both REN21, a global leader in compiling, analyzing, and disseminating renewable energy data and information for its flagship publication, the annual Renewables Global Status Report, and ECREEE, a specialized agency of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) whose mandate is the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
