The main approach involved using national and international expertise to collect and judge the information on EE and DSM project- and programme evaluations. The national expertise included experiences in programme evaluation, in the (inter) national standards for GHG emissions related to energy use and in programme costs.
Four tools were used to structure the process:
- Reports by national experts
- Draft and final international reports provided by the Operating Agent
- Experts’ meeting to discuss (evaluation approaches, scenarios, concepts etc.), national reports and Task reports
- Discussions with future users and policy makers at national and international level.
The first phase of the Task developed a common framework to clarify the function of scenarios and measurements for evaluation guidelines to clarify the function of scenarios and measurements for evaluation guidelines, to compile an international evaluation guidebook for energy efficiency programs, focussed on GHG mitigation and also to communicate and promote the guidebook. The second phase of the Task tested, modified and finalized the evaluation guidebook.
