The Benchmark Tool

As stated in the Work Plan (Work Package 3, Activity 1) it is an aim of the project to explore the energetic status quo of each participating region. But the synopsis paper of the different baseline papers of each region is not a comparison in a practical sense. To maintain a comparing analysis different reference values were defined. For this reason a benchmark tool has been elaborated. The benchmark tool has a main objective: To figure – with its indicators – as a base to develop a regional energy strategy. Either a single region can use the tool to see if it is well set-up with its energy strategy or several regions can compare themselves concerning their energy situation. The Benchmark Manual explains how to use the tool.
