Monitoring and Evaluation: District retrofitting monitoring program

Targeted to the three Lighthouse Cities, this document contains the general description of the monitoring to be installed relative to the district retrofitting actions. The KPIs and indicators coming from the papers "Evalutation protocol" and "City impact evaluation procedure" and are further deployed to match the monitoring elements that will provide the information for the project interventions evaluation stage.

The objective of the monitoring program task under the workpackage Monitoring and Evaluation is the definition of monitoring programs for the Lighthouse Cities. Three parallel documents are being generated covering the monitoring and metering aspects for three main pillars of the project: the district intervention actions, the vehicles and urban mobility actions and the actions related to the integrated infrastructure pillar.

All the necessary requirements defined up to now for the interventions have been taken into account to define systems for monitoring, metering and data acquisition, to be chosen according to the set of KPIs selected to quantify the result reached after the execution of the interventions and actions in each LH city as were established on the evaluation protocols defined in the papers "Evalutation protocol" and "City impact evaluation procedure".

This specific report compiles the monitoring program for the actions related to district intervention pillar for the three Lighthouse Cities participating in SmartEnCity project, following the evaluation strategy drawn through the different documents delivered previously on the workpackage Monitoring and Evaluation and applying the evaluation protocols of each city. This document jointly with the other two monitoring documents and the data collection approach deliverable show how the data gathering and collection from the different sources (dwellings, buildings, district, vehicles, etc.) will be done to allow the proper evaluation of the final performance.

It was intended to include on this document more specific details of devices and monitoring equipment to be installed, but no many final monitoring equipment has been yet decided being thus instead included indications, recommendations and guidelines for the definition on the cases needed. A final report including the detailed and more comprehensive information of all monitoring elements and the data collection process will be done at the end of the project (Monitoring Summary). In the meantime a follow-up process will be done to check periodically the advances of the actuations, and the implementation of the different measures, as well as the data collection process. This will be contemplated on internal periodic reports and also on the supervision of the interventions papers.
