Monitoring and Verification Schemes

Croatia has implemented an integrated IT-tool, the System for Monitoring, Measurement and Verification of Energy Savings (SMIV), for the homogenous monitoring and reporting of their M&V schemes, which will be entered and verified until the end of 2016. Croatia is currently in the process of training the end-users in effectively using the tool.

Best practice cases have been identified under the following topics:

  • Administrative authorities and their responsibilities
  • Sectoral and spatial analysis
  • Measurement and monitoring procedures
  • Data collection procedures
  • Verification procedures
  • Penalties for non-compliance
  • Integrated tools

Here is the full report on European best practices for M&V schemes and coordination mechanisms

Coordination Mechanisms

There is developed coordination between the different bodies in Croatia, although the only official body is nationally defined – the National Energy Efficiency Authority. Local authorities are involved by making three-year and annual energy efficiency plans, which are legally required and evaluated by the National Energy Efficiency Authority. Nevertheless, they are not obligated to implement the energy efficiency measures as defined by the National Energy Efficiency Action Plans. An additional barrier is the limited human resources at local level, while significant opportunities for the co-funding of energy efficiency measures are available.

Indisputably, the coordination will be improved at local and regional level if the SMIV has access to fully fledged and completed data for the evaluation, monitoring, measurement and verification of the implemented energy efficiency measures.

Best practice cases have been identified under the following topics:

  • Allocation of responsibilities
  • Involvement of regional and local authorities
  • Legal and economic instruments for involving local and regional authorities’
