Energetic assessment and the total energy concept

This document describes the buildings that are used for the presentations in the BEST
ENERGY project.
The document has been prepared by each of the involved partners. The main
responsible for the document has been Viborg Municipality.

Decide what indicators are needed

This document contains a list of indicators used by the BEST Energy project as basis for the evaluation of the impact of the project and documentation that the project fulfils the overall objectives concerning energy savings.

How to measure and validation of socioeconomic impact

The objective of the WP1 is the development of an Impact Evaluation Methodology. In order to attain this goal, three steps have been necessary:

First, to introduce a theoretical framework. Two theoretical models have been selected and adapted to the concrete conditions of the project.

Second, to develop a suitable research methodology with corresponding research techniques to be applied in the field. For this purpose, the contextual framework of the pilots and the innovative ICT based solutions have to be taken into account. Our project partners from the pilot teams will provide this data and inform us about their requirements and the variables of their interest in order to be included in the survey. In addition and following our research tradition, our research methodology will combine quantitative and qualitative methods.

Third, to assure involvement and participation of end-users, according to the Participative Design. For each pilot we will develop an individual strategy of how to include the different target groups in the process, in order to influence behavioural aspects and to attain adapted use behaviour.

This deliverable - D1.3 Methodology for measurement and validation of socio-economic impact of the pilots – represents the outcome of WP 1.4 and reflects the actual state of the project:.

Build your own methodologies

This document contains a list of indicators used by the BEST Energy project as basis for the evaluation of the impact of the project and documentation that the project fulfils the overall objectives concerning energy savings.
The document describes for each of the pilots and replications how the panel of indicators which is described in Deliverable 1.2 is met.
Firstly in section 2, the general - or success - indicators are described. These are common for all the pilots and replication pilots, of course split into buildings and street lighting systems. However, the method of calculation is different in each case, due to the differences in the building energy systems. For each pilot, the calculation method is specifically described. In some cases references to appendices or Deliverable 1.1 are made.
Secondly in section 3, the secondary - or performance - indicators that are individual to the projects are described. Here the methodology to get the indicators is shown separately for each of the pilots and replication pilots.
Finally, an appendix is inserted for some of the pilots, if this has been deemed necessary to be able to enter descriptions that do not fit into the layout scheme which is otherwise used in the document.
