This map-based interface enables online data management, visualisation and analysis of data related to energy and industry, helping policymakers to plan the key changes needed to decarbonise the economy.

The Energy and Industry Geography Lab shows where to find clean energy, if the necessary infrastructure is in place, or whether there is land available for the installation of renewable energies.

It also hosts socio-economic information, and offers forward-looking capabilities, as it includes geospatial data from scenario work by the Commission and third parties.
