How to evaluate the impact of energy efficiency measures and the achievement of energy efficiency targets on national, regional or local level? The multEE project has compiled a comprehensive report with a variety of methods to calculate energy savings from single energy efficiency measures. These so called bottom-up methods range from soft measures such as behavioural change and awareness raising to more technological ones such as quantifying the energy saving impacts of retrofitted building shells, more efficient heating systems, appliances, industrial motors and cars, just to name a few. The report can be downloaded from the multEE website; country-specific values for the savings calculation are currently being identified by the project partners.
