Monitoring and Verification (M&V) schemes - Belgium

As each of the three Belgian regions developed/develops its own Energy Efficiency Action Plan, each region has also set up its own M&V scheme. The monitoring approach mainly applied in the Walloon Region and Flemish region is a bottom-up approach. The EU recommended bottom-up formulae are used by these regions most of the time for quantifying the energy savings of implemented energy efficiency measures; only when the data at hand does not fit the recommended bottom-up formulae, alternative formulae are applied, developed by the monitoring bodies in the regions itself. A top-down approach is mainly applied for the transport sector. Energy efficiency measures suggested and implemented mainly target the building sector; however, substantial energy savings are also reported in the energy, industrial and transport sectors.
