The Energy Evaluation Europe 2021 Conference will take place online this year from 10:00-14:00 CET on March 10th, 11th, 15th and 16th and will focus on the theme of Accelerating the energy transition for all: Evaluation’s role in effective policy making.
streamSAVE partners will take part in Panel Discussion #2: Improving ex-ante assessments with ex-post evaluation results: How can we close the loop? on Monday March 15th from 11:15-12:15 CET. Diedert Debusscher (ECI) will moderate the panel and Nele Renders (streamSAVE coordinator, VITO/EnergyVille), and Jiří Karásek (SEVEn) will participate as panelists, alongside Jürgen Salay (Senior Expert, European Commission).
This panel will explore how closing the learning circle between ex-post policy evaluations and ex-ante projections would assist stakeholders in delivering rapidly scalable savings and maximise their chances of reaching energy savings targets at national and EU level. Panelists will discuss how expected savings estimations (eg. EED art.3 and art.7) can better align with actual energy savings achieved.
Within the EU Green Deal policy framework, this topic is of high interest to policy makers who want to make use of evidence-based recommendations. Panelists will look at the challenge from various angles, such as governance aspects, data collection and methodologies, and experience sharing. The panel will draw on experiences from EU countries and the discussion will take into account general findings and concrete illustrations from on-going studies.
