Public Procurement of Energy Efficiency Services | Getting Started

This note offers operational guidance on how to get started with energy efficiency services procurement programs. It starts with a summary of the main findings of the ESMAP publication: Public Procurement of Energy Efficiency Services: Lessons from International Experience and then delves into the modalities of operationalizing these findings for World Bank (WB) operations, including issues of WB procurement and financing.


Rather than seek to recommend changes in WB procedures, it presents some ideas and options under current WB processes to formulate operational approaches and strategies to deliver large-scale energy savings to public agencies, at both the national and local levels.
