Information technology (IT) tools in the implementation of energy efficiency policies play an important role in ensuring both the collection, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of projects and overall policies’ results, especially when there is a high number of reporting parties and some lack of expertise.
The automation of the monitoring process through IT platforms is a success factor in many EU countries.
- In Austria the Austrian Energy Agency owns its e-Government online application for the Energy Efficiency Act.
- In Croatia we can see the SMiV (System for Monitoring and Verification of Energy Savings), platform in force since 2015 and frequently updated during the years. All the steps for an effective MRV are provided through the platform .
- In Ireland the Energy Credit Management System (ECMS) manages the MRV process from uploading data to credit validation.
- In Italy, a platform has been implemented to collect White Certificates projects, updated due to changes in the regulatory framework.
