The following tool has been developed in the frame of the MODER project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
MODER has developed different tools such as:
The following tool has been developed in the frame of the EU-MERCI project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
The EU-MERCI Database contains aggregated data from real implementation of efficiency projects in industry, provided by the EU-MERCI “Enablers”.
The following tool has been developed in the frame of the ENERFUND project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
ENERFUND is a tool that rates and scores deep renovation opportunities. The tool is based on a set of parameters such as Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes, etc.
The Green Public Procurement technical database is a database with template of technical terms for purchase of green products/services. The templates were developed in compliance with the public authorities’ needs and with the specific requirements in each partner country. The tender documents templates are designed to facilitate the GPP process in all public authorities and especially in the Covenant of Mayors’ signatories, which commit to achieve higher than average results in their SEAPs.
Standardised easy-to-use energy check tool (energy audit) for SMEs in five different crafts: Bulgarian carpenters, German bakers, Greek bricklayer/glass producer/ painter producer, Irish small food producers and Spanish meat producers.
TIMES (The Integrated MARKAL-EFOM System) is an economic model generator for local, national or multi -regional energy systems, which provides a technology-rich basis for estimating energy dynamics over a long-term. It is applied to the analysis of the energy sector, but may also applied to study in detail single sectors. Reference case estimates of end-use energy service demands are provided by the user for each region.
Urban energy planning
The MEU project has as objective to develop and test a web tool that precisely meets the needs of planners of urban energy systems. This project helped put together the academic partners, as well as four Swiss cities.
The calculator for municipal energy consumption developed by Energy Agency of Plovdiv is a software tool, based on Excel, to support local authorities in calculation of total municipal energy consumption and energy costs. This tool gives opportunity to separate energy consumption:
- by sectors- public sector, public administration, transport, industry, agriculture sector, health and social care, households, tourism;
- by energy sources and monetary value.
The EnergyPLAN model is an input/output computer model for Energy Systems Analysis. It simulates the operation of national energy systems on an hourly basis, including the electricity, heating, cooling, industry and transport sectors. The main purpose is to assist the design of national energy planning strategies on the basis of technical and economic analyses. General inputs are demands, RES, energy plant capacities, costs and a optional different regulation strategies emphasizing import/export and excess electricity production.
The CO2 calculator developed by EAP is a software tool to support local authorities in translating the types of fuel used by the local authorities into energy and CO2 units. It covers hard and liquid fuels. Its emission factors are based on the national requirements and are periodically updated.
