Award criteria

Criterion text

Points shall be awarded if the computers have a lower annual energy consumption, (ETEC value), compared to the values in the regulation (EU) No. 617/2013, considering eco-design requirements for computers and computer servers, Annex II. Points are awarded in proportion to improved energy performance compared to the values in the regulation.

A maximum of X points is awarded, [X is specified by the contracting authority]:

More than 80% better energy performance: X

60–79% better energy performance: 0.8 * X

40-59% improved energy performance:

20-39% better energy performance: 0.4 * X

10-19% better energy performance: 0.2 * X
