Public procurement can be an effective tool for promoting innovation and integration of renewable energy (RE) - from the municipalities and businesses. However, there are also barriers that need to be overcome. For example, it may be difficult for a public authority to find the small and medium-sized enterprise that can offer innovative services. By the same token, complex public procurement procedures might represent a burden for the SMEs. In this context, the workshop will be evaluating barriers to the collaboration between innovative SMEs and local government while evaluating RES innovations not only from an economic point of view but also considering their environmental impact via the LCA (Life Cycle Analysis).
The co-creation workshop is aimed at identifying good practice examples, considering both barriers (including EU procurement rules) and opportunities.
Attending the co-creation workshop will provide knowledge on:
• Latest international research on funding innovations in renewable energy
• Good practice cases
• EU procurement rules
• British terms and conditions for green and innovative public procurement
• Barriers to procurement and possible solutions
