Task 24: eceee summer study 2015 storytelling paper

23 June 2015

This very well received paper was presented at the 2015 eceee summer study to over 150 people. It represents an overview of the various ways Task 24 has used storytelling as ‘translation’ methodology and the theoretical basis behind some of the narrative categories.

Task 24 – Subtask 3: Deliverable 3B Factsheets

23 June 2015

“From ‘I think I know’ to ‘I understand what you did and why you did it’”

This is the third and last deliverable for Subtask 3 on Monitoring and Evaluation. It builds on Deliverables 3 and 3A and presents fact sheets for how to use single- and double-loop learning on three common intervention tools in the buildings retrofit sector (Energy Performance Certificates, mass marketing campaigns, subsidies and loans).

Task 24 – Subtask 3: Deliverable 3 Methodology Review

23 June 2015

Beth Karlin (University of California Irvine) and a team of researchers kindly undertook a large-scale methodological review of literature in the domestic feedback and building retrofit domains. The goal of the review was to identify any standard methods of collecting data to assess the success of behavioural interventions. The main findings of this report are that, clearly: there is no standard methodology of collecting data and evaluating behavioural interventions; there is too little information given in most papers to recreate meaningful evaluation; and we need to develop an internationally-validated tool to collect data that proves that a behavioural intervention was successful, why (not), how and via what means.

Task 24 – Subtask 3: Deliverable 3A Evaluation Positioning Paper

23 June 2015

“Did you behave as we designed you to?” This is the second deliverable of Subtask 3 on monitoring and evaluating behaviour change programmes. It is a positioning paper that looks at how different disciplines evaluate behaviour, the many challenges Behaviour Changers face when trying to evaluate behaviour and some possible solutions.

Simplified measurement & verification + quality assurance instruments for energy, water and CO2 savings. Methodologies and examples (ECEEE’14)

1 July 2014

Measurement & Verification (M&V) is a prerequisite to assess the quantitative outcomes of energy, water or CO2 saving measures and to translate these into savings cash flows for energy efficiency financing and other purposes.
As a possible solution and often feasible compromise between no M&V at all and the effort and (perceived) accuracy of a full scale M&V approach, this paper proposes simplified M&V approaches for individual or groups of electricity, heat, water or CO2 saving measures (ECM) in combination with so called quality assurance instruments (QAI)1. QAIs shall verify the functionality and quality of ECMs, but not necessarily their exact quantitative outcome over an entire project cycle. In many cases the simplified M&V approaches proposed are combinations of savings calculations to determine savings cash flows backed up by QAIs.

Task 24 – Subtask 1: The Monster Storybook

18 January 2014

Task 24 – Subtask 1: The Monster Storybook is a published summary showing examples of case studies, recommendations and evaluation metrics from the domains building retrofits, smart meter/feedback, SMEs and transport.


Task 24 – Subtask 1: The ‘Monster’ Case Study Analysis

15 November 2013

Task 24 – Subtask 1: The ‘Monster’, as we fondly call it, is our Case Study Analysis showing how different models of understanding behaviour or theories of change were applied – explicitly or implicitly to real-life interventions in the domains building retrofits, smart meter/feedback, SMEs and transport.
