EU GPP case study: Energy efficient swimming pools in Rotterdam, Netherlands
In 2010 the City of Rotterdam tendered for an energy performance contract (EPC) covering 9 swimming pools, with payments based on actual energy savings delivered. The contract included the maintenance and operation of the facilities and was awarded through competitive dialogue. The Municipality aimed to reduce energy use, costs and CO2 emissions, to outsource maintenance and to improve swimming conditions. Comparisons between the baseline energy use and a preliminary analysis of potential improvements indicated a 10-year payback period. The award of the contract was based to a large extent on the energy savings offered by the bidders. The winning contractor guaranteed annual savings of 34%. The initial investments will be paid back through the energy savings made over the 10-year contract period. The contractor receives a financial bonus for energy savings of over 34% each year or penalties if they fall short. The successfully piloted use of an EPC has motivated Rotterdam to use this method as a template for similar procurement procedures in the future.
