Accenture Strategy engaged various stakeholders in a series of workshops in each of the six participating cities. These workshops helped identify the most promising areas for energy transition and specific challenges and opportunities for carbon emissions reduction.
Based on these insights and identified requirements, Accenture Strategy developed a Web-based, open data energy planning and simulation platform called TRANSFORM DSE. In parallel with its launch, Accenture Strategy developed an interactive module around urban energy planning to give city stakeholders insights on the need for cooperation and the value of sharing data for speeding up their city’s energy transition.
TRANSFORM DSE is an open data energy planning and simulation platform developed by Accenture Strategy.
One key benefit of the program was an increased awareness of how important and beneficial a common energy transition platform and processes would be for each of the consortium cities and Europe as a whole. The TRANSFORM DSE is a highly innovative, comprehensive, open, and flexible tool which enables city stakeholders and decision makers to visualize and analyze open energy data, create different transformation plans, and under a variety of future scenarios evaluate their impact on key performance indicators like CO2 emissions, energy consumption, renewables, and energy costs. It calculates the investments needed and energy and costs reduction delivered.
Accenture Strategy is now teaming with the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions to use the TRANSFORM DSE to harness the latest academic research to further develop the platform. The “expert community” around TRANSFORM DSE helps to ensure the continuous improvement of its usability and functionality, as well the sharing of knowledge between users and developers. The program’s innovative data-driven, open approach is already resulting in a fundamental shift in the way leading cities tackle their energy and sustainability challenges.
