Energy End-use Data from EMSD cost 5,905 HKD according to their website:  "All requests will be considered according to the availability of data and our Data Release Policy. Please note that a handling charge of HK5,905 per request shall be paid by commercial or private organisations/individuals before the data is released".  Why is there handling charge? How did the department come up with this price?

Happy ‪#‎OpenDataDay‬!

Co-organised by the Open Knowledge Foundation, Open Data Day invites citizens around the world to create visualisations and publish analyses using open and public data. This also helps to support and encourage the adoption of open data policies by the world's local, regional and national governments.

Help your community find ways to use open data, visualise or analyse data or simply join by curiosity! And use the thousands upon thousands of datasets on open-data.europa.eu and europeandataportal.eu ! Yours to use and reuse!

Do you want to learn more about the new European Data Portal? Now's your chance ...

Launched last 16 November, the European Data Portal portal contains the metadata of public sector information made available on national portals across Europe, including geospatial portals. It also contains guidance on how to make the most of open data, how to be harvested by the portal as well as a full suite of e-learning modules.

Find out more in a free webinar on 21 January 2016 (1600–1800 CET) during which the project team will present the potential the portal offers to Member States and to society in general. You'll be able to ask experts about technical aspects, as well as share best practices in the field of open data publishing and reuse.
