Active Implementation of the European Directive on Energy Efficiency (AID-EE)

Download PDFDownload PDF
By reconstructing and analyzing the implementation process of 20 energy efficiency policies in different sectors, the AID-EE project identifies key factors behind successes and failures of these policies. The project: • applies a uniform methodology (policy theory method) to analyze the effectiveness and efficiency of the 20 instruments; • provides guidelines on how to use the policy theory in practical day-to-day policy making; • focuses on determining the interaction between different policy instruments targeted at a specific sector; • tries to identify key indicators that need to be monitored for different type of instruments to enable a good evaluation of the effectiveness and efficiency of instruments; • provides a practical overview of "do's and don't" for policy making in the field of energy efficiency. The work will be reviewed by 10 experts and the practical "do's and don't" will be disseminated through 6 national workshops for policy makers at different governments levels, energy agencies and energy companies.

Results

  • A report with general conclusions on key factors for success and failure of different types of instruments.
  • Practical guidelines on monitoring and evaluation of energy efficiency policies that can be used by national policy makers.
  • Materials for 6 national workshops in the local language at which at least 60 policy makers will attend and discuss the developed guidelines for monitoring and evaluation.

Lessons learned

  • The policy theory method turns out to be a good approach to pinpoint critical indicators for the monitoring of energy efficiency instruments
  • For most selected instruments that were analysed not enough monitoring data was available to perform a proper bottom-up evaluation of the impact and efficiency of the instruments.
