Procurement Handbook for Energy Efficiency Services

The procurement handbook for energy efficiency services (EES) provides guidance to encourage the application of quality criteria within the procurement phase of a project.

The handbook aims to improve knowledge of stakeholders both on the demand side of EES, including public and private clients and facilitators, as well as energy services providers on the supply side of EES.

It provides both general background information and detailed advice on the application of quality criteria in Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) and Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) procurement.

It also offers an interesting overview of approaches to the procurement of energy efficiency services (EES) in several European countries, as well as covering the relevant legislation and recommended procurement procedures, evaluation criteria and methodology.
