Public Procurement of Energy Efficient Products Worskhop Proceedings

Attendees shared their experiences and challenges in developing policies and programs that ensure that public agencies purchase energy efficient equipment. Such programs are important as energy efficient products offer a better value for governments than traditional equipment which costs more to operate over a lifetime.


Among the hurdles to adoption of such programs identified by the participants were a lack of incentives, higher upfront costs for energy efficient equipment, and behavioral biases.


A roundtable discussion on the second day of the workshop enabled participants to deliberate key issues such as barriers and drivers, policy tools, incentive mechanisms, financing, harmonization efforts and alternative procurement strategies.
