The prooject will develop two innovative compact hyb brri id electrical/thermal storage systems for stand-alone and district connected buildings. This report is an initial Data MManagement Plan (DMP) report made public in mmonth six (March 2018). It outlines how data a arre collected or generated by the HYBUILD projecctt, in terms of how it will be organized, stored, aand shared. It specifies which data will be op n a access and which will be confidential within thhe consortium, as far as it is possible to do so aat this stage. The report has been developed following the Horizon 2020 guidelines (EC DG R&I, 2017) whit additional guidance from the joint OpenAire and EUDAT webinar "How to write a Data Management Plan" (OpenAire and EUDAT, 2018) Open access (OA) is understood as the free, online provision of re-useable scientific information to other users. There are many good reasons to make the data and findings from publically funded research openly available to the research community, the commercial sector and civil society. Much of the data gathered by the project is for the purpose of project management and delivery rather than new knowledge creation; it is therefore likely that much of the data is categorised as confidential (Consortium). However, the project will seek to openly disseminate its research findings, except in cases where there are deefined exploitable outcomes, privacy concerns or there will be a high administrative burden for a dataset of limited worth to other users. The initial HYBUILD DMP highlights that the most significant datasets identified are the Life Cycle Assessment results of the HYBUILD systems (Task 5.1) and the energy performance resutls of the overall system (Task 6.4). It is these data that will validate the impact of the project and the conclusions drawn in scientic publications that arise. It is intented that where possible these data will be made avaliable through open access repositories. This Data Management Plann will have to be updated in conjunction with the progress of the research: datasets characterisation will be fine-tuned, and potentially their publication level will have tot be adapted accordingly. An update of the various datasets is anticipated at M12 of the project, in conjunction with the release of the communication plan (D8.4).
