MICAT rests on a comprehensive approach that links science, policy and stakeholders for estimating multiple impacts of energy efficiency at different levels (local, national and EU). In the next years, MICAT will elaborate a publicly available online tool that can be easily used by a broad group of actors. The tool allows carrying out simplified analyses on the basis of different policy scenarios in order to compare and assess energy efficiency impacts. These assessment methods, to be integrated in the tool, will rely on previous experience and seek to offer a scientifically sound state-of-the art approach for quantifying a broad range of impacts deriving from energy efficiency measures. The dissemination of this tool aims at establishing a culture of assessment of multiple impacts to do justice to the relevance of the topic and to promote it further. It should open up the possibility of connecting the approach with scenario exercises and measure evaluations on EU, national and local level and thereby contributing to closing the energy efficiency gap.
