05 Monitor

Are we reaching our goals?

The fifth step monitors the performance of the implemented measured. Monitoring what has been implemented and quantifying the benefits obtained is crucial to ensure continuous improvement.

Tools 5: Monitoring System

The Smart Altitude Monitoring System is the tool that allows to monitor effects and impacts of implemented measures. Impact evaluation allows to start the process again by setting new goals and targets and continue with implementation of further mitigation and adaptation options.

During this step, the direct involvement of stakeholders identified during step 02 should be considered. This will help operators and policy makers in forming an integrated policy plan that will increase the ability of the ski area to adapt to a changing climate and to attract new tourists

Monitoring System in the Living Labs

For each of the four Living Lab, the SmartAltitude project designed a system for the real time display of energy saving and GHG emissions reduction on public information platforms in ski resorts.

Example of Monitoring System

This table provides an example of the data that can be monitored to go towards climate-neutral strategies in ski resorts.

Type of Data

1) Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission for snow production

2) Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission for ski lifts

3) Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission for snow groomers

4) Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission for service buildings

5) Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission for entire resort
