The focus of this paper is laid on the critical discussion of methods applicable for the calculation of CO2 emission and its general reduction potential within the CIP framework pilot projects – drawn on the example of the CIP project MOLECULES. Four CIP (ICT4EVEU, mobi.Europe, MOLECULES & smartCEM) pilot projects started in January 2013, paying particular attention to different aspects of the electro mobility (EM) integration into existing transportation systems. As for MOLECULES, a classical car sharing approach accompanied by electric vehicle (EV) fleets is being applied. Supported by means of ICT EM options are to be offered and, thus, seamlessly integrated into the transportation systems of Barcelona, Berlin and Grand Paris. In two dedicated work packages methods and indicators for the impact assessment are defined and – after the operational implementation of project use-cases – applied for the evaluation of project performances. Within the project MOLECULES, the specification of methodology and corresponding indicators cover four main fields of project evaluation: • CO2 emission reduction, • Project performances, • User acceptance and • Added values for cities and regions. This paper pays special attention to the reduction of CO2 emissions. The project approach to derive both pilot site and European CO2 emission reductions from integrating EV sharing schemes into daily transport routines is described and critically discussed. Finally a clear conclusion of weaknesses and open points is given as a base for further discussions and deployment. In general, the methodology for the MOLECULES impact assessment and evaluation is a mixture of objective measures (data base requests and internal project investigations) and subjective investigations (different questionnaires, interviews and stakeholder workshops). For some indicators, further elaborated quantitative denominators need to be specified and afterwards interpreted, aggregated and scaled-up applying results of subjective user, stakeholder and system investigations. The methodology is targeted to cover both levels of consideration – the MOLECULES project and the European CIP framework level.
