What is its purpose?

The indicator measures the number of proposals for improving the use of cleaner energy that were proposed as part of a project, which the relevant authorities officially accepted, and subsequently put into practice. This can include, for example, establishing a dialogue mechanism; making changes in the legal framework; adjusting taxation (e.g. lower VAT on green products); introducing energy efficiency requirements; etc.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:

 

1) Define the criteria specifying what counts as “put into practice”. These should include primarily:

- specific actions taken by the authorities demonstrating that the measures recommended in the proposal are used

- any official documents / policies confirming that the proposal was officially adopted and is used in practice

- additional criteria might include: allocation of financial / human resources for implementing the proposal; inclusion of the proposal in the authorities’ work plans; etc.

 

2) Use key informant interviews (with the relevant authorities, project staff, etc.) and reviews of relevant documentation to assess whether the criteria were met and why the change happened. The ‘why’ aspect is very important, as you should be able to prove that the project has clearly contributed to the change.  

 

3) Count the number of proposals where the criteria defined in the first point were met and where the project has clearly contributed to the desired change.  

 

Important Comments

1) Ensure that the project team archives relevant documents providing clear evidence of which measures were officially adopted by the authorities (e.g. authorities’ announcements; documents showing funding allocation; meeting minutes; etc.).
