How to make the best technology even better, BAT becomes BAT+

Teacher Hans De Keulenaer, Hans Nilsson

Description

Technology Procurement where industry is challenged to produce technologies better than what the market presently provides has been used in Sweden, Europe and in the US with stunning results, BAT is made BAT+. The method has been commonly used in the military sector and for large infrastructure but can be applied with success also on “fragmented” markets for energy efficient technologies.

A procedure for collaborative procurement actions for the introduction of innovative, more energy efficient products was developed and tested in a number of pilot projects by the IEA DSM-Programme. 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%.
