Emphasis on energy efficiency as purchasing criterion for transport services and excavation machinery and services

 

Demand increases supply of energy efficient equipment and services.

Strengths, factors in favour

Weaknesses, uncertainties

Costs, economic impacts

Energy efficiency criteria may emphasise the fuel consumption of machinery or driving training for drivers

Criteria must be defined clearly when planning procurement.

+ Lower fuel consumption reduces the costs of transport and construction services.

The energy consumption of the municipality's technical equipment is reduced and emissions decrease, too.

 

+ Higher demand usually pulls down prices (here, those of equipment and services).

Energy consumption of transport and excavating services purchased by the municipality decreases and so do emissions.
