Presented at: ECEEE Summer Study 2009, La Colle sur Loup, France, 1-6 juni 2009.

A crucial prerequisite for the successful implementation of the Energy Service Directive (ESD) is the availability of harmonised calculation methods for the energy savings achieved. Such methods will enable the Member States to prove that they attain the overall target of 9% or more energy savings by 2016. Since 2006, the EMEEES project, implemented under the European Commission’s Intelligent Energy Europe programme by 21 partners and co-ordinated by the Wuppertal Institute, has worked on a set of 20 bottom-up and 14 top-down evaluation methods. It developed (1) an integrated system of bottom-up and top-down methods for the evaluation of energy services and other energy efficiency improvement measures; and (2) a set of harmonised default values for the methods.
