XPRESS – an EU-funded project under Horizon 2020 R&I programme – gave support to Public Procurements to facilitate the collaboration between SMEs and public sector for the adoption of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) in regions.
XPRESS studied Green Public Procurement (GPP) and was investigated how this type of procurement could create new markets and provide financial support for RES innovations.
The project further mapped the low carbon energy needs of European cities and municipalities, analysing perceived and actual barriers to investments in RES innovations and developed new methodologies to evaluate the financial, economic and environmental impact of RES technologies.
