Calculating the IEE Common performance indicators

Calculating the IEE Common performance indicators

The assessment of the impacts is a key aspect within the management of IEE projects: this is important to measure the success of your project and in turn of the entire IEE programme. Impacts are identifiable changes which demonstrate the extent to which your activities have an effect on your target group; these include quantifiable energy-related impacts both within the duration of the action and beyond its lifetime, known as IEE Common performance indicators.  

Assessing the impacts of your project

Under the IEE Programme, projects must adopt an impact-focused approach to performance indicators. To this end, since the 2009 call for proposals, the EACI requires project consortia - in addition to their project specific indicators - to deliver IEE Common Performance Indicators (CPI) covering the renewable energy production triggered, primary energy savings, investments mobilised, and GHG reduction.

The CPIs measure the energy-related impact of your project, within its duration and by 2020; they are common to all IEE projects.

The document below provides guidance to the consortia managing IEE projects for the calculation of the IEE Common performance indicators: 

  • the sustainable energy investments triggered,
  • renewable energy production, 
  • primary energy savings, and 
  • reduction of greenhouse gas emission.

>> Guidelines for the calculation of the IEE Common Performance Indicators

These guidelines are based on the work undertaken in the framework of the service contract “IEE Project Performance Indicators” (EACI/IEE/2011/001), the final results of which have been delivered in December 2012.
