DECC is a project partner of the ODYSSEE project. This is an EU sponsored project to monitor energy efficiency in European countries. The project includes the 28 European Union countries plus Norway. Project partners provide detailed data on energy use and activity data which enable ODYSSEE to produce a database of energy efficiency indicators covering the major final energy sectors: household; services; industry and transport. The ODYSSEE-MURE website contains indicators and datasets and has recently been revamped.
