How will the ECOSTARS scheme turn permanent? Task 2.3 - Transferability will answer the following questions: 12 October 2014 18 Transferability - Objective
1. How may lessons learned from local implementations support future recommendations and guidelines for large scale implementation? -Based on experiences reported from each local scheme, results will be summarised in deliverable 2.3 12 October 2014 19 Transferability – Lessons learnt
2. How can longevity be secured after the end of EC- financing? By identifying roles and potential benefits, a general business model will be drawn up. -ECOSTARS Zero? -National support? -Standardisation organisations? -Fees? 12 October 2014 20 Transferability – Business model
3. An appropriate timescale for revision of standards taking account changes in technology should be secured. -A four-yearly review of assessment standards which follows a set process of consultation 12 October 2014 21 Transferability – Revision of standards

Strength of ECOSTARS is common scheme criteria and approach implemented on a local level What commitment should each scheme make to each other? How should we do this? – If a local scheme does not continue, how do we best communicate that to members and other stakeholders? – How do we keep local schemes in line with each other? – How do we continue to share best practice between schemes? – How do we protect the ECOSTARS brand? ECOSTARS – In June 2014...

12 October 2014 27 Contents Impact and process evaluation: a refresh A proposal for a set of common ‘core’ indicators Evaluation activities in local schemes: status and issues Towards the Final Evaluation Report
12 October 2014 28 Impact Evaluation is an assessment or estimate of the impacts or effects of the scheme; for it, the methodology needs to relate elements in a clear, logical way to form basis of a common understanding for all involved; the scheme impacts will be deducted by comparing the scheme results with a ‘do-nothing’ scenario.
12 October 2014 29 Process Evaluation intends to assess why the local scheme performed as they did and in what way internal or external factors played a role; its main insights concern the identification of drivers (or factors of success) and barriers that facilitate or hinder the successful implementation of the ECOSTARS scheme; The methodology relies primarily on questionnaires and interviews with the auditors and those involved in the engagement effort ( → questionnaire for process evaluation assessment will be addressed – with different questions – both to operators and scheme managers).
12 October 2014 30 A proposal for a set of common ‘core’ indicators (1) Within the Evaluation Plan, each city has defined its own set of appropriate performance indicators suitable to assess the expected impacts of the scheme. The main aspects to be taken into consideration are: Energy efficiency Environmental sustainability Operational management efficiency Engagement programme effects Motivation and image perception
12 October 2014 31 A proposal for a set of common ‘core’ indicators (2) Since for any cross-site evaluation it is necessary to define a set of common indicators and to determine those indicators in a comparable way at different schemes, ISIS is proposing to draw up a short document to be circulated for comments and approval among Local Scheme Auditors/Managers where a set of ‘core’ indicators will be defined. The final aim is to assure that a minimum number of indicators will be collected in every site allowing for a cross-site and project level assessment.

12 October 2014 33 Evaluation activities in local schemes (1) Status of Evaluation activities Data collection for impact indicators Questionnaires for process evaluation Basque Region No information received-- Cantabria Already started Some indicators have already been recorded Since many members felt annoyed when being asked for feedback, it has been decided to submit a final questionnaire asking for an overall opinion Edinburgh Not started yet (but in November 2013 newsletter members will be alerted on the process imminence) - Short questionnaire foreseen for scheme members Separate questionnaire to non- member stakeholders Ostrava Not started yet (foreseen in 2014)- The ECOSTARS members workshop could be a good circumstance to collect information for process evaluation
12 October 2014 34 Evaluation activities in local schemes (2) Status of Evaluation activities Data collection for impact indicators Questionnaires for process evaluation Parma Already started (M28) Indicators list under revision Data collection to be started on October 2013 (M29) Questionnaire in Italian is under finalization By mid October 2013 it will be distributed among organizations being audited Rotterdam Activities will start on M30 Local Evaluation Plan indicators list under analysis The research for an appropriate method for interviewing members is under development South Yorkshire Will begin in Nov Pilot of new quantitative assessment tool currently underway in 6 operators -Nov 2013 - Also data produced using quantitative assessment tool pilot will be used - Will be drafted in November and circulated in December Swedish Regions No information receivedN/A
12 October 2014 35 The majority of local schemes have not yet started the evaluation activities. Due to local constraints in several locations the indicators listed in the Local Evaluation Plan are not going to be possible to collect A common set of ‘core’ indicators needs to be guaranteed in order to allow both a cross-site comparison and a project level assessment. As far as possible, the time schedule for data collection should be the same in all sites to avoid any delays in the Final Evaluation Report drafting. Evaluation activities in local schemes: some issues
12 October 2014 36 Towards the Final Evaluation Report (1) Step 1: a proposal for a common set of ‘core’ indicators to be collected by each site will be circulated for comments among Local Scheme Auditors/Managers. 11 October 2013 Step 2: the final set of ‘core’ indicators will be defined and approved. by 25 October 2013 Step 3: bilateral contacts will take place between ISIS and each Local Scheme Auditor/Manager in order to avoid any misunderstanding on what kind of information need to be collected. from end of October to December 2013 Step 4: data collection will start and the gathered information will be forwarded to ISIS. from November 2013 until end of January 2014
12 October 2014 37 Towards the Final Evaluation Report (2) Step 5: a first draft of Final Evaluation Report will be drafted and contributions from partners will be asked. by 28 February 2014 Step 6: a second draft with partners contributions will be circulated for comments. by 15 March 2014 Step 7: the consolidated Final Evaluation report will be drawn up. 31 March 2014
12 October 2014 38 A gentle reminder For the most recent audits each Local Auditor is asked to: Send to ISIS the Excel files of the audited fleet in order to be uploaded on the database together with the Road Map of each fleet operator audited in order to be attached online to the relevant fleet audit Comments from partners on the proposed schedule towards the Final Evaluation Report are more than welcome! A good evaluation process is critical to the project success – make sure you make time for it each month from now
