Monitoring & Evaluation
The monitoring and evaluation services at DEM include assessment for planned, ongoing or finalized interventions in relation to the climate and energy sector, covering the entire project cycle at all levels of the results framework, including outputs, outcomes, and impact.
DEM thrives to ensure energy savings, financial savings and ultimately reducing the CO2 footprint for our clients, with following methods:
- Developing of measurement and verification (M&V) frameworks
- Monitoring the impact of energy efficiency measures (e.g., energy savings)
- Installation of energy monitoring systems (CTS) to measure indoor climate and energy savings
- Performing project evaluations and ad-hoc studies for knowledge sharing
Programme identification and formulation
DEM has extensive experience in providing bi-lateral and multi-lateral clients support in identification and formulation of national and regional initiatives across the energy and environment sector.
We offer programme identification and formulation service from conducting situational analysis of environmental, social, and economic sustainability issues, strategic orientations considering political frameworks and ownership, priority interventions and priority areas, key stakeholders, and ongoing projects mapping, to developing first proposals for possible actions, partners, implementation modalism, governance, and steering, to the formulation of draft Action Documents for new actions.
Policy and regulation
DEM has a strong track-record in providing guidance to numerous governments and institutions across the energy policy spectrum, on both energy supply and demand side. Based on the quantitative analysis of national and international data, combined with best practices, policies and strategies that support sustainable socio-economic development priorities are identified, defined, operationalized, and monitored. Our legal, financial, fiscal and institutional frameworks ensure that initiatives and instruments designed are based on sound assumptions and a robust assessment of the sector and its future.
To ensure successful implementation and anchoring of technical energy measures, capacity building is provided as an integral element in our services. We provide training and capacity building to professionals and at an institutional level to governments, ministries, non-governmental groups, and communities to ensure successful implementation and anchoring of technical energy measures. Concepts such as leadership, awareness and community building are part and parcel of our institution building efforts.
- Highly experienced instructors within all energy related disciplines
- Training course and curricula development, implementation, and examination at an academic level
- Organization of workshops, seminars, and network establishment
ESCO & EPC
DEM provides technical assistance in developing Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) around the world through Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) to conduct cost effective energy saving measures.
DEM offers a range of services that covers the full project cycle of implementation of energy efficiency measures in buildings, which includes the initial screening activity, Investment Grade Energy Audit (IGA), Design & Engineering works, arranging and providing financing, procurement works, installation of high efficiency equipment and commissioning of the energy efficiency measures, and monitoring throughout the contract period as a part of our turnkey services.
DEM conducts a range of sector studies, covering policy and institutional frameworks, energy efficiency potentials, investment opportunities, local barriers etc.
We provide detailed analysis of current trends, forecasting of future demand patterns, identification of policy options for the specific context, and recommendations for reforms, based on a thorough understanding of global best practice and supplemented by quantitative analysis that makes use of tested, multi-faceted databases and energy modelling tools. Our studies aim to ensure feasibility of a project for our clients before investing, and help making informed decisions contributing to a successful project, from a technical, economic, legal, and environmental perspective.
