Development of Knowledge Management System on Energy Efficiency

    Project Details

    Description

    The idea of developing a Knowledge Management System (KMS) on Energy Efficiency is to enable policy makers, energy practitioners and end users to have quick and seamless access to relevant information. The key function of the KMS is to allow the user to search and retrieve useful information based on filtered queries. The purpose of the system is to gather as many points of information as possible regarding energy efficiency and store them in a knowledge database. Then it will provide all the necessary tools for computerized collection and the ability to connect with other databases. End users will obtain relevant insights and ideas appropriate to their work from the KMS through advance searching capabilities. The process will be more effective through the use of tags, which are machine-understandable and so the system can be actively involved in assisting the end user to find relevant information.
    One of the primary outcomes of the KMS is to improve the planning for, and follow-up on, energy efficiency initiatives based on information-sharing and dialogue between the energy efficiency community and other stakeholders.
    This outcome will be achieved through two activities:
    1. Creating a knowledge management system where users can access current information on energy efficiency; and
    2. Building knowledge and sharing experiences among the network of organisations and experts involved in energy efficiency.
