II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Further to the earlier description, the evaluation of Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) scheme that started on 1.4.2013 aims to assess:
a— the extent to which the scheme has achieved its objectives (i.e. incentivising energy efficiency whilst maintaining competitiveness) and how these have been achieved,
b— the extent to which this has delivered value for money,
c— the evidence on the effectiveness of CCAs and similar schemes to be used to develop future policy.
These aims will be met through 2 phases:
Phase 1 (Pilot) will assess the feasibility of a main evaluation, including the counterfactual scenarios, and will consolidate the design of the main evaluation. This phase will also assess the existing evidence on the effectiveness of CCAs and similar international schemes to develop future policy. This phase may include carrying out modelling on a sample of sectors to demonstrate what can be delivered through the main evaluation process. A break point is included at the end of Phase 1, and at this point whether further evaluation work is required or the exact nature of the activities to be included in Phase 2 will be agreed.
Subject to the outcome of Phase 1, Phase 2 (main evaluation) will undertake the evaluation of the scheme to assess its impact and value for money and to understand how this evidence can be used to develop future policy. This Phase will end with a synthesis of the evaluation evidence which addresses the final agreed research questions.
