On November 30, the first auction in energy service procurement for budget institutions in Ukraine was held in e-procurement system ProZorro. Particularly, the new procurement mechanism was tested in Sumy. After the city council ratifies the terms and conditions of the energy service contract, the investor will conduct thermo-modernization of one of the local schools.
Currently, the electronic system has announced 95 tenders relating to the arrangement of agreements on the provision of energy services for budget institutions. The head of the State Agency for Energy Effectiveness expects that the usage of transparent mechanisms for the selection of partners who are ready to invest into the thermo-modernization of budget institutions will contribute to the formation of a competitive and effective energy service market in Ukraine.
To search for potential investors, the State Agency for Energy Effectiveness urges the local government to identify objects that require energy effectiveness measures and to establish contracts for energy service tenders.
With the help of prozorro.gov.ua website, one can follow procurement processes online: when clicking on the “Procedure Type” of the website panel, one will find an “open procurement of energy services” section.
Ukraine started to implement the mechanism of energy service contracts back in 2016. In particular, twenty procedures of energy service procurement were held last year. They all led to the establishment of energy service contracts.
