A practical guide explaining the steps for a public authority to take to encourage energy efficient innovation through public procurement
and an Excel tool (with a User Guide) for calculating both life-cycle costs (LCC) and CO2 emissions in procurement are now available for testing.
Please note - both the Guide and the Tool are beta versions (not final versions) that will be finalised in early 2011 following their use by the SMART SPP public authority partners in their innovation focused public procurement actions.
