(4) the further provisions regarding the recognition of energy efficiency improvement measures are standardized in section 15 and section 27 para. 4 EEffG.

Calculation model for energy end-use efficiency

End energy savings are standardized and normalized energy end-use § 4 (1) of generalized methods (§ 12) from the standardized and normalized final energy consumption before an energy efficiency measure (baseline) minus after an energy efficiency improvement measure to determine.

(2) the determination of the baseline for generalized methods shall be determined depending on the type of the energy efficiency improvement measure as follows:



1.

When a new acquisition of energy consumption equipment or the construction of a building or a facility, calculated on the basis of legal guidelines, standardized and normalized final energy consumption of the energy efficiency improvement measure is if there is legislation for the final energy consumption or final energy consumption of determining properties as to attract baseline. There is no such statutory provisions which restrict the final energy consumption or normalize properties determine the final energy consumption, is the standard average technology in determining the baseline to be used.

2. for a replacement or exchange of energy consumption unit or an extension of existing consumption functions to improve energy efficiency while maintaining the original function, the baseline is standardized and normalized of the replaced unit of energy consumption final energy consumption or final energy consumption of the energy consumption appliances on average in the stock.

Whenever possible, appointing as standard average technology or the energy consumption appliances on average in stock presupposes that Z 3 whose determination is based on surveys in accordance with article 7, paragraph 1. These surveys are to update depending on relevant market developments.

(3) the final energy consumption is to set an energy efficiency improvement measure to prove the individual assessment and in the generalized method data sources according to § 6.

(4) the normalization of energy consumption for generalized methods has to be carried out, whereby the impact of external factors which could distort the calculation of energy savings on the basis of the current state of science, cannot be ruled out as best as possible in the form of adjustment factors.
