Task 3 “Co-operative Procurement” was carried out during 1994 – 1999 with eight countries and the European Commission as participants. A procedure for collaborative procurement actions for introduction of innovative, more energy efficient products was developed and tested in a number of pilot projects. Concrete results included a clothes drier with the energy use cut by half (the first “Class A” drier), electric motors with losses reduced by 20- 40% and a “copier of the future” where the energy use was reduced down to 25%. After evaluation of proposals and prototypes, the suppliers received the “IEA DSM Award of Excellence”.
Two workshops were organised during the years, each with about 80 participants. Formulation of performance criteria and creation of mechanisms for recognition are two important elements in technology procurement efforts.

Appendices to Task 3 Final Management Report, March 2000
Research Report No 2: Public Policy Implications of Mechanisms for Promoting Energy Efficiency and Load Management in Changing Electricity Businesses
1 July 1999
Analyses the impact of different electricity industry structures on the effectiveness of existing mechanisms in promoting the implementation of energy efficiency and load management. The findings were used to: 1) identify existing mechanisms to be examined in more detail, and 2) identify possible new mechanisms to promote load management and energy efficiency in restructured electricity industries and competitive electricity markets.
Research Report No 1: Existing Mechanisms for Promoting DSM and Energy Efficiency in Selected Countries
1 October 1998
For those countries which participated in Task 6, this report reviews: 1) the electricity industry composition and structure; 2) mechanisms to promote the implementation of DSM and energy efficiency by electricity businesses.
