SCIS Essential Monitoring Guides

The enclosed guides are to provide assistance and to be considered as helpful in the preparation of data for projects that may be considered part of the Smart Cities Information System (SCIS).

Disclaimer: These documents have been elaborated by the Smart Cities Information System (SCIS) following a thorough analysis of different initiatives and projects that work on the development of data for Smart Cities. It is complementary to other initiatives and at the time of the publication of these documents, not all of the projects in the scope of SCIS have been completed. Thus these guides will be the subject of regular updates.

  • Technical Monitoring Guide

    Published: 15 July 2016

    The Technical Monitoring Guide defines a common approach and standardised methodology, which should be applied by all projects to ensure a comparable presentation, evaluation, assessment, analysis and dissemination of the different actions realised in projects in the scope of the Smart Cities Information System (SCIS).

  • Part I: Policy Monitoring Guide

    Published: 15 July 2016

    The aim of this guideline is to support the preparation and subsequent implementation of policy recommendations based on the data gathered. For achieving this objective, an appropriate structure for gathering relevant types of information is introduced. This is a prerequisite for the political implication of the respective measures. Furthermore, by providing a common structure, meaningful comparisons of assessment results of different projects are enabled.

  • Part II: Social Monitoring Guide

    Published: 15 July 2016

    The aim of this guideline is supporting the preparation and subsequent implementation of long-term monitoring for the gathering and assessment of social data. For achieving this objective, an appropriate structure for gathering relevant types of costs is introduced. This is a prerequisite for the social assessment of the respective measures. Furthermore, by providing a common cost structure, meaningful comparisons of assessment results of different projects are enabled.

  • Economic Monitoring Guide

    Published: 15 July 2016

    The aim of the guideline is supporting preparation and subsequent implementation of a long-term monitoring method for the collection and assessment of economic data. For achieving this objective, an appropriate structure for collection of relevant types of costs is introduced. This is a prerequisite for the economic assessment of the respective measures. Furthermore, by providing a common cost structure, meaningful comparisons of assessment results of different projects are enabled.

  • SCIS Self-reporting Guide

    Published: 03 April 2017

    The Self-reporting Guide will lead you step by step through the data provision process. The data you are reporting about will be used to calculate the relevant KPIs for the different interventions within the projects' demo sites. 

  • SCIS Key performance indicators Guide

    Published: 25 October 2017

    The objective of this guide is to give a description of SCIS key performance indicators and their application to the different objects of assessment, identify the data requirements for their calculation and describe the methodology for the calculation of these indicators.

  • Best Practice Example Monitoring Report

    Published: 06 February 2019

    This monitoring report can be viewed as a good example of an approach that will allow the party responsible for provide monitoring data to the SRT tool of SCIS to fill the SRT with the right parameters. It treats the design of the energy performance, the actual results over a year, the CO2 emissions and economic parameters as for example the payback time of the measures. The report also compares the data with a reference situation. The example is for new buildings, but is easily transferable to refurbished buildings. This particular example also enters into technical details of the various measures taken. This is not needed in view of the requirements for SCIS SRT.
