Understand the opportunities to apply sustainable procurement practices to assist in achieving energy efficient buildings and low-carbon cities through: • Integrated approaches to urban energy and procurement • Frameworks for public investment in existing buildings • Leveraging public procurement for innovation • Public Private Partnerships
he innovation and power of business models helps in enlisting large number of utilities and governments to participate in energy saving projects. This helps in aggregation of demand. EESL then procures equipment or services in bulk enabling reduction in costs due to ensuing economies to scale. For instance, in the UJALA programme, the bulk cost of LEDs have reduced from Rs. 310 ($ 5) to Rs. 40 ($ 0. 65) as a result of procurement of 300 million LEDs over a 2 year period.
