Monitoring and Verification Schemes

Portugal does not have an M&V scheme currently in operation for energy efficiency measures, nor is it in its implementation phase, apart from the reporting schemes to the Directorate General of Energy and Geology (DGEG). Instead, there are periodic surveys and evaluation reports in the mandatory schemes for public consumers along with data collection on specific facilities, such as energy efficiency in public administration.

Coordination Mechanisms

The status of coordination mechanisms between different governmental levels for energy efficiency measures is still at their early stages in Portugal. Although there is communication between administrative levels by formal consultations, no coordination mechanism has been established yet.
