The streamSAVE project attended the eceee Summer Study on energy efficiency 6-11 June 2022.
Nele Renders, streamSAVE coordinator, and Kelsey van Maris participated in Panel 4. Monitoring and evaluation for a wise, just and inclusive transition, which focused on best practices in monitoring and evaluation, the latest advancement in practice and ongoing challenges.
The objective of the panel was to explore:
- How the principles of ‘efficiency first’ and ‘energy sufficiency’ are considered in energy efficiency evaluations
- How evaluations account for demand reduction and/or demand switching with a focus on the role of human behaviour and decision making
- How multiple benefits are considered, possible trade-offs with non-energy impacts
- How these can influence decisions
- How energy efficiency policies can promote a just and inclusive sustainability transition
An informal session was held on 9 June by the streamSAVE project to discuss how to make reporting on energy savings easier. This session was attended by policymakers and streamSAVE project partners.
