A decision support tool for energy efficiency policy evaluation

Implementation of energy efficiency policies and monitoring of their impacts through indicators and databases.


The 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) establishes a set of binding measures to help the EU reach its 20% energy efficiency target by 2020. Countries have also set their own indicative national energy efficiency targets. To reach these targets, EU countries have to implement energy efficiency policies and monitor their impact. The Commission has also the task of monitoring the impacts of the measures to check that the EU is on track with its 2020 target. The main objective of the ODYSSEE MURE 2015 is to contribute to the monitoring and evaluation of energy efficiency policies by updating two databases covering each EU MS: ODYSSEE on energy consumption and energy efficiency indicators, and MURE on energy efficiency measures. The update of these two databases will provide information required by each MS and the Commission to assess, monitor and evaluate energy efficiency progress and the state of implementation of measures and their impact. The project will also provide innovative training tools and documents in a very user friendly way to public administrations to help them monitor the progress achieved with indicators, and design new policy measures and assess their impacts, not only in terms of energy savings, but also in terms of the other benefits linked to energy efficiency improvements.

Main Activities ADENE

ADENE main activities include the participation in follow-up project meetings and the update of the ODYSSEE and MURE databases. ADENE will also develop 2 country profiles as well as a national report, and will organize a regional training session and a national seminar to promote the project.

Key Deliverables

• ODYSSEE and MURE databases (market diffusion, energy efficiency trend and indicators, national policies on cross-country and sectoral measures available to be consulted by public in general);
• Training tools and publications;
• Assessment of multiple benefits of energy efficiency policies;
• Communication materials.

Portuguese Deliverables

• Updates on ODYSSEE and MURE databases;
• Country Report:
• Training tools;
