D2.06 Holistic Impact Assessment of Demonstration Activities
The overall goal of SPARCS is to demonstrate and validate innovative solutions for planning, deploying, and rolling out smart and integrated energy systems that will transform cities into sustainable, citizen-cantered, zero-carbon ecosystems.
The scope of T2.4 is to perform the impact assessment of the interventions deployed in the Lighthouse Cities (LHCs) of the project -namely Espoo and Leipzig- based on the methodology and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) defined in Task 2.1 of WP2. In order for the assessment to be processed, specific targets were set for each intervention. These targets were either derived from project’s objectives or cities’ goals and Building Energy Specification Tables (BEST) or were set based on estimates according to interventions’ technical specifications. The aim of T2.4 is intervention targets to be achieved by the end of the project and not during this first monitoring period.
In the current deliverable, the evaluation of the first – of the three – monitoring phase is carried out. For the city of Espoo, the first monitoring phase covers a period of 12 months, from March 2022 to February 2023. In contrast, for Leipzig, due to delays in the implementation of the planned interventions, the first phase covers a period of six months, instead of a 12-month period as originally planned, i.e., from September 2022 to February 2023.
