LCC - calculation of lifecycle cost (washing machines)
An LCC calculation can be used to evaluate the most energy-efficient products.
- Award criteria
- Washing machines
During evaluation of tenders, the cost effectiveness of each tender will be assessed through a life-cycle cost analysis.
[The contracting organisation] will use the attached LCC tool in its evaluation.
The following conditions apply for washing machines:
|Conditons||Fields to be completed by the contracting organisation|
|Number of units (pcs) to be procured|
|Number of years included in the calculation (years of operation per unit)|
|Cost of capital/discount rate (%)|
|Electricity price (SEK/kWh)|
|Price of cold water (SEK/m3)|
|Size of unit (place settings and/or width)|
Information from the supplier
The supplier must provide information about the purchase price and energy cost. This information will later be used as the basis for evaluating the tender.
|Information about the purchase price and energy cost.||Fields to be completed by the supplier|
|Purchase price incl. cost of delivery per unit|
|Annual energy consumption per unit (kWh/year) calculated in accordance with the EU energy labelling regulation applicable for the appliance on the closing date for submission of tenders|
|Annual water consumption per unit (litres/year) calculated in accordance with the EU energy labelling regulation applicable for the product on the closing date for submission of tenders|
Energy label showing energy and water usage in accordance with
- Regulation 2017/1369 on the indication by labelling and standard product information of the consumption of energy and other resources by energy-related products (the Energy Labelling Directive), in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2014 with regard to energy labelling of household washing machines and household washer-dryers.
Follow-up by checking the calculation made in the LCC calculation tool. Check that the equipment supplied are the same as the ones in the calculation.
Information about the criterion
The Life-Cycle Cost (LCC) aims to consider an appliance's cost from a life cycle perspective. In order to do so, all costs over the lifetime of a product need to be included; that is, the investment cost (purchase price and costs for delivery and installation), operation and maintenance expenses (costs related to energy and water consumption, repairs, servicing etc.) and costs for disposing of waste at the end of the product's life cycle. Other additional costs that will be incurred over the lifetime of a product, such as any insurance, taxes, and fees, must also be included to arrive at the correct figure.
The Life-Cycle Cost (LCC) aims to consider an appliance's cost from a life cycle perspective. Costs related to the environmental impact incurred over the lifetime of a product can be included in a Life-Cycle Cost (LCC) calculation. LCC calculations are a useful tool in being able to make conscious and long-sighted, financially sound investment decisions. These calculations often indicate that environmentally friendly products are better from an overall financial perspective.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
