4 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 4 Key environmental impacts

5 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 5 Purchasing criteria Core GPP criteria - focus on: –50% of electricity from renewable energy sources (RES-E) –Encourage higher % of RES-E through award criteria Comprehensive GPP criteria - focus on: –100% of RES-E

6 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 6 Electricity - Core GPP criteria - Core GPP Criteria - Note: For implementation notes see the notes page

7 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 7 Electricity - Core GPP criteria Purchase of 50% electricity from renewable energy sources (RES-E). Subject matter 50% of supplied electricity must come from renewable energy sources (RES-E) as defined by Directive 2001/77/EC. Verification:Verification: through Guarantees of Origin (GoO), as delivered by competent bodies designated by the Member States according to EU Directive 2001/77/EC (art. 5) or equivalent proof. An alternative would be for the supplier to provide independent proof of the fact that a corresponding quantity of electricity has been generated from so-defined renewable sources, e.g. a tradable certificate from an independent issuing body such as RECS[1], which guarantee the compliance with the RES-E Directive 2001/77/EC if not nationally implemented. Alternatively, certification by a labelling scheme for green electricity which fulfils at least the criteria of the RES-E Directive 2001/77/EC will be accepted as proof, such as a Type-1 ecolabel [1]RECS = Renewable Energy Certificates System:

8 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 8 Additional points will be awarded for: Additional RES-E: The tenderer should indicate the proportion of electricity to be supplied from renewable energy sources. Additional points will be awarded in proportion to the electricity to be supplied from renewable energy sources above the minimum requirement in the specification. Award criteria Electricity - Core GPP criteria

9 European Commission GPP Training Toolkit Module 3: Purchasing recommendations for electricity 9 At the end of each year of the contract the contractor must disclose the origin of the electricity supplied to the contracting authority to demonstrate that at least 50% came from renewable energy sources. Guarantees of Origin (GoO) or equivalent proof must be provided. This is not required from certified suppliers of 100% green electricity (i.e. carrying a Type-1 ecolabel which uses a definition of RES-E at least as strict as that of Directive 2001/77/EC). Contract performance clauses Electricity - Core GPP criteria
