This report provides a review of the potential indicators that could be used to assist in the evaluation of the development outcomes achieved by renewable energy technologies, sustainable transport solutions and energy efficiency measures. This study sets out these proposed indicators and provides the means to benchmark these technologies against one another to maximise the effectiveness of low carbon development aid. This report is an explanatory addition to the low carbon project evaluation tool which represents the practical outputs of this study.
