Data Collection Process for Bottom-up Monitoring

04 Oct 2016

All EU member states are requested to monitor and report their progresses on energy savings. However, such a process requires the collection of reliable data, the analysis of which can generate comparable results. This report provides guidance on how to structure an effective data collection process on the basis of best practice examples and on how to collect the necessary data to monitor and verify energy efficiency measures.



Identifying areas of improvements of Monitoring and Verification schemes and Coordination Mechanisms

07 Sep 2016

This report identifies areas of improvement of Monitoring and Verification (M&V) schemes and coordination mechanism in the nine partner countries of the MultEE project. Furthermore, an analysis has been carried out to conclude on these areas of improvements in respect of the different types of political governance in the partner countries.

Presentation of the bottom-up methodologies in the ENSPOL project training course

08 Jun 2016

On 8 June 2016, CRES presented the bottom-up methodologies, which were developed within the multEE project, in the training course of the ENSPOL project regarding the design and implementation of the energy efficiency obligation scheme in Greece. Specifically, the bottom-up equations were analyzed to the participated representatives of the obligation parties and the technical associations in order to be utilized in the measurement and monitoring mechanisms, which has to be developed.

CRES organized the 1st workshop for the specification of the country specific calculation values for the developed bottom-up methodologies, which will be utilized for the estimation of the achieved energy savings. The discussion was held within the framework of the design of the energy efficiency obligation scheme in Greece according to the requirements of the Article 7 of the EED.

Policy Briefs No. 2 - Policy recommendations on coordination mechanism

02 Aug 2016

Solid multi-level governance models are a prerequisite for the development of coherent and synergistic plans. Still, effective coordination mechanisms among policy layers are difficult to put in place. This Policy Brief presents a set of policy recommendations on coordination mechanisms resulting from the identification and analysis of a broad range of European best practices.

Policy Briefs No. 1 - Policy recommendations on Monitoring & Verification schemes in EU

02 Aug 2016

Effective methods to measure energy savings are necessary to assess the progresses achieved by national energy efficiency plans. Still, the development of effective Monitoring and Verification (M&V) schemes remain a challenge. This Policy Brief features a set of policy recommendations resulting from the identification and analysis of a vast array of best practices on M & V schemes across Europe.

Internet platforms for Monitoring and verification of savings

21 Jun 2016

Monitoring, measurement and verification are the “hot topic” of energy efficiency issues, especially when dealing with Energy Efficiency Obligations. However, the process is usually very demanding and requires a lot of resources in terms of time and administration. One possible solution is a systematic approach through customized software for tracking energy efficiency. Croatia has implemented two such central internet solutions in practice, and is now reaping their benefits.
