How to use the Self-Assessment Tool ?
Every energy cooperation project has a common start: to identify local opportunities by
examining the energy supply and demand, the stakeholders, and the existing
infrastructure of the region. Often a lot of knowledge is available, but it is spread among
different stakeholders. For example, companies do not know the needs and potentials of
their neighbors. The self-assessment tool facilitates the process of collecting the different
information sources and bringing them together in one simple overview. With the tool,
users make an inventory of data in four categories that are important when exploring
opportunities for energy exchange: energy supply (heating, cooling, electricity), energy
demand (heating, cooling, electricity), stakeholders and existing infrastructure. By
answering several questions, users can also self-assess the information completeness
and quality of the inventory and identify the next steps for the region.
This practical user guide helps you to use the Self-Assessment Tool. All steps are clearly described.
