Examples of relevant projects
1. Mid-term evaluation of the European Energy for Recovery Programme
Deloitte conducted the project that evaluated the relevance, the efficiency and the effectiveness of the European Energy for Recovery Programme. In particular, it focuses on the state of play in the implementation of the EEPR projects, the impacts of the programme in terms of economic recovery, and its contribution to the achievement of the EU energy policy’s objectives.
2. Ex-ante evaluation/Impact assessment of a potential successor to the IEE2 programme
With the end of Intelligent Energy Europe II programme in 2013, the European Commission needed to start thinking of what will follow it in the field of promotion, dissemination and replication of best market practices in sustainable energy from 2014. The objective of the assignment was to assist the Commission in performing the ex-ante evaluation/impact assessment of IEE3.
3. Minimum security measures for Smart Grids project
ENISA (European Union Agency for Network and Information Security)
Smart grid is electrical grid that uses information and communications technology. Deloitte supported Member States in measuring the security maturity of Smart Grid implementations to provide a framework / measurement tool for National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs).
4. Ecodesign preparatory studies
DG Energy and DG Enterprise
In the context of the Directive (2009/125/EC) on ecodesign of energy-related products, BIO* carried out 21 preparatory studies (Lots) on the ecodesign of different products. These studies include complete analysis of a product over its whole life cycle from different perspectives: market analysis, consumer behaviour, best available technologies, and improvement potential in terms of better energy efficiency and fewer environmental impacts. Depending on the Lots, BIO* was in charge of all tasks or of some mainly related to environmental assessment and policy analysis and recommendations. Full list of studies
5. Energy performance certificates in buildings (EPC) and their impact on transaction prices and rents in selected EU countries
The aim of this study was to demonstrate whether there is a link between the energy performance of buildings or building units, as expressed by EPC, and their value, whether rented or sold. This was achieved by creating a combined dataset of EPC information and data on sales prices and rents and performing detailed econometric analysis on it. Diverse building types in several Member States were assessed. Besides project management, BIO* was responsible for gathering data in various countries and analysing the outcomes of the developed model. Final report
6. Development and maintenance of the comprehensive Energy Research Knowledge Centre (ERKC)
Development and maintenance of the comprehensive Energy Research Knowledge Centre (ERKC) - a central information point on European, national and regional energy research priorities and programmes. BIO* is responsible for work package on data gathering and structuring information on energy research programmes, projects and their results, as well as institution databases and technology platforms.
