Report on KPI and impact of DECIDE pilots
The first part of the report (D.2.1 - Report on KPI and impact of DECIDE pilots) consists of information on the online Maturity and Scalability Tool, which was developed as part of the DECIDE project. The tool was created to help energy initiatives assess the maturity and scalability potential of their initiatives in an easy and fast way. The tool is designed to be user-friendly and accessible to a wide range of stakeholders and create impact beyond the project lifetime. The tool provides a comprehensive overview of the initiative's current status and identifies areas for improvement. It is designed to be flexible and can be adapted to suit the needs of different energy initiatives.
The second chapter of the report provides quantitative KPIs linked to the DECIDE pilot progress, as well as the broader impact DECIDE pilots had on replication or policy developments in their countries. The chapter also includes conclusions on the opportunities and limitations of using the proposed KPIs.
The main findings of the report indicate that the DECIDE project has been successful in developing energy communities and promoting sustainable energy practices since the pilots have demonstrated significant energy savings and CO2 emissions reduction. The report also highlights the replicability potential of the project, which can be used as a model for other communities to adopt sustainable energy practices. It shows that growth is not always of quantitative but also of qualitative nature. The report is intended for policymakers, energy experts, and other stakeholders interested in promoting sustainable energy practices and developing energy communities, as well as for existing and emerging energy communities that want to better assess their performance and progress as well as identify their strengths and weaknesses.
