The workshop brought together over 40 experts from research, academia, government and industry to exchange ideas and experiences around the theme of open data for the energy sector. Participants discussed obstacles for Saudi Arabia, including the limited availability of open source data and the lack of cutting-edge tools and modeling systems, and how these challenges can be addressed to improve energy sector analysis and policy design. The event also focused on the KAPSARC Data Portal (KDP), which aggregates around 1,300 relevant datasets from 80 publishers, and how energy modelers can use it to advance their research.
