Once a project has been in operation for a full year, the eeef receives annual audits stating its actual energy consumption. Year-on-year consumption variances are expected due to a number of factors, such as weather and static data, and therefore project savings can change annually. As shown below, these projects achieved total accumulated savings of 181,391tCO2 e and 19,541MWh of primary energy savings through the end of 2015. 1 Both the Rennes and Orléans CHP biomass plants are in full operation. In both facilities, the CHP biomass plants are achieving significant carbon savings when compared to baseline (Rennes 59% and Orléans 71%). Both fa- cilities negative primary energy savings are predominantly due to a switch from highly efficient fossil fuel boilers and CHP plants (80% or more) to CHP biomass boilers of around 65–70% efficiency. It is understood that primary energy savings for these projects may improve over time as the biomass plant efficiencies reach their optimum. 2 All project savings are calculated following international protocols, including the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) for energy accounting and ISO 14064 for carbon accounting. All methodologies used by the eeef are validated by a global engineering company. Currently, all projects with concrete data are reporting in alignment with these guidelines, and all new projects are aligned with these frame- works. Project savings represent total project investment volumes. 3 The cumulative BT savings represent seven sub-projects. The portfolio’s percentage savings are calculated based on all sub-projects using a weighted average methodology. 4 For carbon, percentage savings are based on the entire portfolio and calculated using a weighting methodology. For primary energy, percentage savings are calculated using a weighting methodology, but only include projects from the portfolio which provide primary energy savings i.e. renewable energy projects are not included. 48 eeef Annual Report 2015 Jewish Museum Berlin Foundation 3,73226% 15,42023% University of Applied Sciences Munich 1786% 5,69734% 50,27171% –101,020 –41% University Hospital S.
