ENSMOV Plus, building on the existing knowledge and success of the previous HORIZON 2020 ENSMOV project, will directly support 11 Member States (Italy, France, Greece, Austria, Poland, Germany, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Lithuania) to improve policy implementation, and evaluation, measurement and verification (EM&V) schemes and deliver on the ambitions of the new Fit for 55 agenda.
More specifically, the project aims to support public authorities and key stakeholders in the implementation of Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), and will develop resources on practical and strategic issues arising from Article 7 to assist them monitor, improve, complement and evaluate the design and implementation of their energy efficiency policies. In addition, the experience-sharing programme of ENSMOV Plus, consisting of a structured set of thematic workshops and addressing a wide range of stakeholders, aims to identify challenges and solutions for energy efficiency obligations (EEOs) and alternative measures, monitoring and verification schemes, and proper policy evaluations.
The kick-off meeting took place on the 1st and 2nd of December 2022 in Brussels where all partners gathered together to discuss their roles within the project and their ambitions regarding the expected outcome and impact.
In particular, during the first day, the focus of the discussions was on analysing individual Tasks and Work Packages (WPs) related to updating the stakeholders’ needs, identifying existing resources and developing the necessary material for the implementation and EM&V of Article 7 of the EED, to fill in any existing gaps. The implementation of the ENSMOV Plus experience-sharing programme was also discussed. During the second day, the focus was on synthesising policy recommendations, on communication and dissemination activities and on developing a sustainability, replication and exploitation plan to ensure the availability and utilisation of project results after its completion.
The Technoeconomics Energy Systems laboratory (TEESlab) will be mainly responsible for:
- Monitoring and evaluating the project objectives and the knowledge exchange programme, by setting up an appropriate mechanism that will allow continuous monitoring and adoption of feedback.
- Mapping existing tools and resources and matchmaking them with specific needs identified, to develop a compendium of resources that will address the different aspects of Article 7 EED.
- Performing an analysis of energy efficiency policies and measures in the residential building sector at the national level. The DREEM model will be employed for the necessary building modelling and simulation activities in this task.
Finally, ENSMOV Plus will maintain and improve the Knowledge Transfer Platform, which serves as a place for learning materials regarding Article 7 of EED policy implementation and EM&V issues.
