GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy-Efficient Product Procurement: A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs

Title:
Energy-Efficient Product Procurement: A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs

Abstract:
Readers of the guide should come away with an understanding of how to develop an energy-efficient product procurement program, the types of energy-efficient products that are available for local government facilities and operations, and an awareness of expected costs and funding opportunities. The guide describes the energy, environmental, economic, and other benefits of energy-efficient product procurement (section 2); energy-efficient product procurement measures (section 3); key participants and their roles (section 4); the policy mechanisms that local governments have used to support energy-efficient product procurement programs (section 5); implementation strategies for effective programs (section 6); costs and funding opportunities (section 7); federal, state, and other programs that provide resources to help local governments plan and implement energy-efficient product procurement (section 8); and two case studies of comprehensive local government programs for energy-efficient product procurement (section 9). Additional examples of successful energy-efficient product procurement and information resources are provided throughout the guide.
