SEMANTIC TOOLS FOR CARBON REDUCTION IN URBAN PLANNING Co-funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme Platform The SEMANCO integrated platform provides access to widely dispersed energy related  data about cities stored by many different organisations. In this way the project platform  supports improved energy analysis based on the assessment of existing data rather  than estimates. It does this using semantic data modelling that enables information stored in different  formats and different places to be used to create a multi-level energy model of an  urban area. That can be used to analyse the energy performance of buildings,  neighbourhoods, districts and regions.

The data available in each area has been integrated using semantic technologies.  Demonstration scenarios have been implemented in three cycles to test the functionalities of the platform's tools. The project activities at each case study are reported in the blogs.​ Project Outputs Recent news & events Article on the SEMANCO integrated platform 21st May 2014 PREFIERES, a Spanish web portal specialized in energy efficiency, has published an article about the  SEMANCO platform of integrated energy services.
