Re-cast of the Energy Efficiency Compliant Products 2018 (EEPLIANT3) Call for Services on Market Data Research
PROSAFE is thankful to all Market Research companies who replied to our call for services for market data. However, while the first EEPLIANT3 call for services on market research gathered some interesting proposals, they were by far exceeding our available budget. Therefore, PROSAFE decided to re-cast the call for services – narrowing down our requirements, without needing to alter post-facto the conditions of the official call, which would go against the validity and the spirit of this procedure. This second Call for Services includes some modifications, mostly regarding the type of the data needed.
All companies that already submitted a reply to the initial call for services are encouraged to apply again, with updated proposals!
PROSAFE will be appointing a market research agency to support with market intelligence necessary to deliver the requirements under this Concerted Action. It is essential to gather information regarding market information, market segmentation and market trends, in order to sample relevant products and to assess the amount of energy savings lost by underperforming products.
The individual work packages (WPs) in this Concerted Action that will require market research data will address:
- WP6 New challenges and emerging issues - one product type TBC;
- WP7 Air conditioners (single/double duct and split air conditioning units);
- WP8 Tumble dryers;
- WP9 Water heaters and storage (to include fossil fuel boilers, electric boilers, heat pump boilers, solar boilers, storage tanks)
WP11 Lighting products;
WP12 Local space heaters (domestic and commercial models).
Criteria and requirements of this Re-cast of the Call for Services can be found in the official call and the general conditions.
