The present evaluation of the Energy Agency Rhineland-Palatinate was carried out on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Climate Protection, Energy and Regional Planning (MWKEL) in the period from June to September 2014. Three main questions were formulated for the evaluation of the EA RLP: - What effects have the activities of the Energy Agency RLP achieved? - How are the EA RLP and its activities perceived by its target groups and the public? - To what extent are the corporate strategy and structure of the Energy Agency suitable for accomplishing tasks and achieving goals? Based on the analysis, recommendations for the future work of the EA RLP were derived. The evaluation refers to the period from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2014 (data on staff refer to August 2014). However, it focuses on the first half of 2014. The approach is based on the evaluation priorities. The approach is based on a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods: - Literature and document analyses - Online survey of more than 2,000 stakeholders in the energy transition, mainly in Rhineland-Palatinate - Expert interviews, in particular with representatives of associations and federations, as well as expert interviews with committee members and EA RLP staff.
