ODYSSEE-MURE, a decision support tool for energy efficiency policy evaluation.


Training materials on energy efficiency policy evaluation

Support materials (PPT presentations) for capacity building trainings regarding the energy efficiency policy evaluatiuon.

Technical papers and workshop presentations

All workshop presentations will be available on the project's website (national presentations as well as general presentations available for public; presentations regarding the project's management or technical coordination meetings available only for the project's partners and the Commission (restricted access on the website). Technical papers regarding tools developped in the different WP will be publicy available.

32 Country energy efficiency profiles

Country profiles present the latest energy efficiency trends and policy measures in all EU countries based on results from ODYSSEE and MURE databases. Country profiles will be a 6-8 pages document availabe on the project's website. They will be available in English and in national languages to be disseminated in countries during the national seminars.

9 National reports

Nine countries will produce a national report on energy efficiency trends and measures based on the ODYSSEE and MURE databases. National reports can be translated in national languages and represent a good dissemination products at national level. They can be distributed during national seminar and trainings

Concept and implement-tation of supply side/ CHP indicators

"Production of a methodological document describing supply side indicators, such as CHP-savings and average efficiency of power production that will be integrated in the ODYSSEE database as well as in the ""decomposition tool"" and the ""energy saving tool""."

Training materials on energy efficiency indicators

"Support materials (PPT presentations and case studies) for capacity building trainings regarding the topic ""Enhancing the use and understanding of energy efficiency indicators and tools"""

1 article in a scientific journal

Preparation of a scientific article on the multiple benefits to address also the scientific community with the results and the methodologies used for the multiple benefits, by focusing on certain topics, e.g. on innovation indicators and their implementation in the energy field.

6 Sectoral profiles

Selection of graphs by sector (around 200 ) with key messages summarizing the key features and conclusions on energy efficiency trends in EU countries. Graphs will be gathered in an Ebook( interactive book). These profiles will be updated continuously during the project's lifetime.

20 printed-policy briefs

Policy briefs, as developed in WP5, will be downloadable through the project website as well as printed to be distributed during several conferences.

Project leaflet

A high-quality leaflet will be prepared at the beginning of the project presenting the project, the partners and the expected results of the project. This leaflet will be updated once during the project to introduce main messages and latest results regarding the project outcomes.

20 “Policy briefs”

Production of about 20 “Policy briefs” with 4-6 pages analysis with a standardised presentation with an attractive layout, so as to be easy to read.

Conceptual paper of 10 pages on the definition of multiple benefits

This paper will develop an understanding of the concept of multiple benefits for energy efficiency which extends the existing ODYSSEE-MURE indicator and policy facilities. This will support stakeholders in using the concepts of multiple benefits in their policy development, building thus capacity of the stakeholders.

Three regional capacity building workshops

3 regional training workshops (Finland, Portugal, Austria) will be organized by the technical coordination for representatives of participating agencies and Ministries for several countries at the same time. Regional trainings are targeted to attract 20 staff persons from public authorities per regional training.

10 webinars

Organisation of 10 webinars focussing partly on the policy briefs, partly on training material on indicators and partly on the multiple benefits issue. The webinars will mainly be targeted at public authorities, at national, regional or local level and will aim at a large audience (30-50 persons per webinar).

National capacity building workshops

National training and/or seminars will be organised in EU countries to target national, regional and local administrations on energy efficiency trends and policy evaluation.

Agenda and presenta¬tions on dissemination activities/capacity building in meetings

Participation to international meetings and workshops to disseminate and present the results of the project and to exchange on methodologies with the EU Commission, EEA, Eurostat, EnR club, IEA, WEC, APERC, UNFCCC, ECS, World Bank, CEN/CENELEC, ISO, Energy Charter. Presentations done during these international meetings will be available through the project's website.

5 Newsletters

Newsletters will be prepared every 6 months and sent to around 5000 contacts (this number corresponds to the contacts we collect during the different phases of the ODYSSEE-MURE project). Newsletters announce the production of the various deliverables and include a summary of the main findings with a direct link to these deliverables.

Overview of studies and results on the evaluation of multiple benefits on the MURE website

This report will focus on specific information from detailed studies of multiple benefits and organize them in an easily accessible way in the facility. This will be in the form of a database access with short characterization of the different studies on multiple benefits and which type of multiple benefits have been assessed and with what results. The database, integrated to the MURE database, can also provide access to the different studies and websites. It will enhance the knowledge in the database by gathering specifically information on studies that investigated policies to enhance multiple benefits of energy efficiency measures.

Web-based Q&A tool

This Q&A tool will be integrated in an interactive platform where everyone can ask questions on energy efficiency indicators or regarding the evaluation of energy efficiency policies. The objective of this platform is also to have a web-based help desk to answer to countries on any questions related to the use of the various data and policy tools and possibly to help apply them at national, regional, local level. This would provide a free consulting service to MS.

Enhanced facilities on energy efficiency indicators

5 tools gave been developped in the previous ODYSSEE-MURE projects on: 1. A “market diffusion facility” that monitors progress in the market penetration of a selection of energy efficient technologies and practices; 2. A “decomposition facility” that shows the factors responsible for changes in energy consumption over a period (e.g. economic growth, lifestyles, energy savings); 3. A “benchmarking facility” that enables any country to compare its energy performance with the country(s) of its choice with adjusted indicators ; 4. An “energy saving facility” that compiles historical data, targets and projections in terms of energy savings, final and primary energy consumption; 5. A “scoreboard facility” on energy efficiency indicators that compares the energy efficiency performance and progress of countries. It is planned to update these tools as well as enhance the energy saving facility (to include energy savings from Article 7 of EED) and the decomposition facility (including new indicators and develop a methodology to provide a more rapid estimate of the decomposition of the energy consumption variation by sector for the most recent year).

Enhanced MURE policy tools

Updating of the 5 policy tools and enhancement of 3 facilities : impact evaluation facility, MURE policy mapper and combined scoreboard both on indicators and policies.

Policy facility on multi¬ple benefits

Development of a facility that would structure the information on the concept of multiple benefits of energy efficiency, on policies with specific impacts on multiple benefits, on feasible indicator to be used to assess the multiple benefits, on approaches and results from projects who are evaluating specifically multiple benefits.

Updated MURE database

Twice updating of the MURE database. Updating of the existing policy tools (policy topic facility; successful measures facility; policy mapper facility; measure interactions facility; policy scoreboard facility).

List of policies and measures related to the multiple be¬nefits of energy effici¬ency

Through this task we will characterize the measures in the MURE database according to their multiple benefits. For that purpose, we will follow an approach similar to the one use to identify successful measures in the Successful Measure Facility (12 criteria were developed in that context to characterize successful measures; some are relevant also to characterize multiple benefits). This will help identifying measures which have important impacts on multiple benefits (policies aiming at the different components of the IEA multiple benefits circle, e.g. by acting on distributional aspects of policies etc…).
