Evaluation of projects for the ECO-ENERGY OPEI Call II programme according to the selection criteria methodology
The aim of this project was to assess renewable energy sources (RES) projects and the energy savings put forward in the framework of the programme ECO-ENERGY OPEI 2007 – 2013 Call II, along with applications for support in the form of investment grants. The programme administrator (grant provider) is the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT). This evaluation was carried out in accordance with the applicable methodology of selection criteria for the Call II on the basis of technical-economic parameters regarding the full application and an energy audit or other project documentation. In all, 502 projects were assessed across the individual activities of Call II, applying for investment grants totalling approximately CZK 5 746 million. Furthermore, a study was compiled on the “Evaluation of the ECO-ENERGY OPEI 2007 – 2013 Programme Call II”. Its content is an overall evaluation of the projects for each of the supported activities, including an economic evaluation and an evaluation in terms of the annual reduction in CO2 emissions, which, in the framework of the pertinent evaluations regarding the selection criteria, obtained a minimum of 50 points, and thus were recommended for further evaluation for the allocation of subsidies. This study also includes an enumeration of the likely increase in the production of electricity and heat from RES and energy savings in final energy consumption for meeting national targets to increase energy efficiency and energy production from RES in the CR in accordance with the relevant EC directives.
