  3. 3. 1. What is the RURENER Local Action Plan (RLAP) evaluation tool The RURENER Local Action Plan (RLAP) evaluation tool is an EXCEL based Score Sheet template designed to help RURENER local steering committees to monitor and evalu- ate the impacts of their local action plans on energy saving, energy neutrality and local sus- tainable development. The RLAP Evaluation tool consists of 15 modules, of which the first two refer to impacts of Local Action Plans on energy neutrality and energy saving and the rest refer to impacts on sustainable local development. More specifically, from the 13 sustainable development impact indicators, 4 indicators are used to assess economic impacts of local action plans, 1 indicator assesses institutional impacts, 3 indicators refer to social impacts and 5 indicators refer to environmental impacts. The following indicators are used in the RLAP Evaluation Scoring Sheet: A. Energy neutrality 1. Energy neutrality increase achieved through RLAP from a baseline evaluation pe- riod (Module 1) 2. Energy savings achieved through RLAP from a baseline evaluation period (Module 2) B. Local Sustainable Development Economic Impacts 1. Cost efficiency of RLAP (Module 3) 2. Profitability of RLAP (Module 4) 3. Capacity building of RLAP (Module 5) 4. Investment in social and human made capital for future generations of RLAP (Mod- ule 6) Institutional Impacts 1. Compliance of RLAP to legislation (Module 7) Social Impacts 1. Employment of local labour through RLAP (Module 8) 2. Social involvement through RLAP(Module 9) 3. Avoidance of nuisance to neighbours (Module 10) Environmental Impacts 1. Preferential use of renewable over non-renewable resources through RLAP (Module 11) 2. Minimization of energy, water and material consumption and land utilization through RLAP (Module 12) 3. Minimization of greenhouse gas emissions, land and water pollution through RLAP (Module 13) 4. Maximization of resource re-use and/or recycling through RLAP (Module 14) 5. Maintenance and restoration of ecological diversity through RLAP (Module 15) 3
  4. 4. The RLAP Evaluation Scoring Sheet awards points for different achievement levels with respect to the indicators used in each module with the Saaty scale. For the first two modules (energy neutrality and energy saving the tool should be used in conjunction with the RURENER energy balance tool. Once achievement levels are recorded in each module a total score is calculated for the whole RLAP. The RLAP Evaluation Score Sheet provides also the maximum possible score that could be achieved, thus providing a measure of pro- gress towards achieving both energy neutrality and local sustainable development. 2. How the RURENER Local Action Plan (RLAP) evaluation tool is used The RLAP Evaluation Tool can be easily used by the local steering committees as it is designed in a questionnaire like format. The quantitative information required to assess the energy neutrality and energy saving of the first two modules can be calculated with the RURENER Energy balance tool. For all the remaining indicators the local steering committee members should take into account any available data related to the RLAP actions, studies, environmental impact assessments and expert opinion. The assessments of the local steering committees should reflect the total impact of RLAP with respect to the different indicators in each module and made with reference to a baseline evaluation period. The local steering committees should decide on the baseline evaluation period. 4
