H2020 ECHOES Deliverable D2.3 - Indicators and recommendations for data collection: Proposal for SSH oriented indicators to support policy-making for clean energy transition in EU

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    This report proposes indicators related to individual and collective energy choices for supporting the implementation of the Energy Union and SET-plan. The report discusses the use of indicators in general, describes indicators in the Energy Union framework including the SET-Plan, and provides a review of
    SSH-relevant indicators in the scientific and public literature. Based on systematic screening of literature, 87 indicators particularly relevant to the ECHOES targets were shortlisted. These indicators cover relevant technological foci, social dimensions and energy transition aspects, allowing tracking and
    analysis of development of decision-making on personal and collective levels. The indicators proposal of this report is based on selected indicators from the shortlist, with indicator suggestions by SET Plan Action 3.1 on energy consumers and Energy Union framework. The final proposal, fine-tuned with the feedback
    from the ECHOES consortium, consists of 27 indicators. The quality of indicators in the proposal is classified in three levels according to data availability, update resolution and the need for further definition work. Importantly, indicators ready for database implementation are suggested in each of the relevant areas, and indicators based on ECHOES main survey data are suggested, showcasing the added value of the project in recommendations for future data collections.
