Network Indicators
  • The purpose of NIs
  • Where we are today
  • Problems encountered
  • Updating NIs
  • Enhancing Performance
the purpose of nis
The Purpose of NIs
  • Manage resources effectively
  • Monitor progress against targets
  • Focus on Performance
  • Demonstrate impact on market
  • Refine programme & approach
where we are today
Where we are Today
  • Defined NIs Oct 98
  • Implemented for Reports Nov 98/Jan 99
  • Review & update July 99
  • Confirm & clarify Sep 99
  • Definitive values Nov 99/Jan 00
characteristics of nis
Characteristics of NIs
  • Standardised set of indicators
  • Cover Input, Output & Performance
  • Applied/reported at Activity level
  • Chosen to facilitate monitoring
  • Integral part of OPET/FEMOPET work
characteristics of nis1
Characteristics of NIs
  • Clearly defined to avoid ambiguity
  • Unique to avoid ‘double-counting’
  • Can apply to several Tasks/Activities
  • Can relate to whole Work Programme
  • Can relate to management/operation
problems input nis
Problems : Input NIs

A1 Expenditure From Part B Forms

A2 Time OPET staff only

B1 STE Resources CU will provide

B2 OPET Collaborators What to count

B3 Non-OPET Partners What to count

problems output nis
Problems : Output NIs

C1-3 Request received : Not key NIs

D1 OPET Events : Identify in Reports and specify that OPET was organiser *

D2 Other Events : identify in Reports and identify organiser (not OPET) *

* Critical NI : information MUST be provided

problems output nis1
Problems : Output NIs

E1 Documents prepared/translated : Not agendas, programmes, flyers etc (not OPET Interim Reports !) *

E2 Documents disseminated : not invitations, questionnaires etc

E3 Articles, press releases : not to be included in E1 *

problems output nis2
Problems : Output NIs

F1 Total records held on contacts database: mainly target markets

F2 Dateabase records accessed/used

F3 Meetings held/attended : avoid double-counting (events, organisations reached)

F4 Organisations reached : substantive contacts only (e.g. not just invitations)

problems output nis3
Problems : Output NIs

G1 Studies/strategies/plans prepared : may be prepared by OPET or by client with OPET advice/assistance, generally strategic covering several opportunities (projects/sites) *

G2 Energy audits/feasibility studies carried out : by OPET or client, generally project or site specific *

problems performance nis
Problems : Performance NIs


H1-2 Technology matches identified : include (successful) partner searches here *

H3-4 Proposals advised on/submitted : 3rd party proposals for EC programmes only *

problems performance nis1
Problems : Performance NIs

H5 Investment opportunities : individual RUE, RES or FF projects (sites) *

H6 Potential investment : capital cost of identified projects

H7 Potential cost savings : from identified projects (can use payback to derive)

H8-9 Energy savings/contribution : care with units (use MWh/y if possible, avoid %) *

updating nis
Updating NIs
  • OPET-CU has reviewed & updated all NIs
  • OPETs must confirm validity and answer outstanding queries : do this at AGM !
  • Then use NIs effectively in Final Reports
  • Seek advice from OPET-CU if necessary
  • Try to focus more on Performance
focusing on performance
Focusing on Performance

WHY Define impact of OPET & Network

WHEN Now : data needed for Final Report

HOW Use existing information sources

Use 3rd parties to generate data

Follow up Tasks already completed

focusing on performance1
Focusing on Performance

Examples :

  • Use plans (G1) to identify project/ investment opportunities (H5)
  • Use audits/studies (G2) to identify potential energy savings/contribution (H8)
  • Follow-up events (D1/D2) to identify technology matches (H1/H2)
success stories
Success Stories
  • Role of Success Stories
  • Types of Success Story
  • Information Needed
  • Links to Network Indicators
  • What to do Now
role of success stories
Role of Success Stories
  • Key part of OPET Network Book
  • Demonstrate impact of Network
  • Identify & promote innovative approaches
  • Promote OPETs & FEMOPETs involved


types of success story
Types of Success Story
  • Full ‘case-study’ description (1-2 pages)
  • Short ‘mini case-study’ (half page)
  • Statement of endorsement by client etc
  • Other suggestions welcome !


information needed
Information Needed
  • OPET, Task, Time, Field, Technology
  • Title, Target Market, Objectives
  • Transnationality, Output & Follow-Up
  • Impact on the Market & Verification


links with nis
Links with NIs
  • Essential to demonstrate impact on the target market
  • Performance NIs are the most appropriate and simplest way to do this
  • Output NIs alone are not enough, but they may still be relevant
  • NIs used in Case Studies must be verifiable
what to do now
What to do Now

NIs Validate list of NIs prepared by CU

Focus on generating Performance

Use NIs effectively in Final Reports

SSs Complete pro-forma & return to CU

Update NIs for SS activities

Provide additional info. when asked
