Measuring savings

For each eco-innovative tender published by the regional networks in the SPP Regions project, environmental impacts have been evaluated. We have calculated:

    • CO2 emissions saved (tCO2/year)
    • Primary energy consumption saved (GWh/year)
    • Renewable energy capacity triggered (GWh/year) (where relevant)

    Our project target for the eco-innovative tenders published was to achieve savings of:

    • 54,3 GWh/year primary energy savings
    • 45 GWh/year RES triggered



    Calculating the impact of eco-innovative tenders

    The environmental impact and benefits of each eco-innovative tender published by the SPP Regions networks have been calculated by comparing the emissions and energy consumption it causes with either a previous tender or a ‘standard’ solution on the market.

    A series of tools have been developed for the project:

    These tools are based on those initially developed within the GPP 2020 project.

    The SPP Regions calculation approach was first used within the GPP 2020 project. This project developed four calculators – for Energy Contracting, Office ICT, Street Lighting and Vehicles Calculators.
