procure at #eusew22

On 9 September, procuRE is organising a webinar within the 2022 Sustainable Energy Days with the title “Cities procuRE Replicable Approaches to Reach 100% RES on-site and Become Energy Self-sufficient”.

Buildings play a key role in increasing the European energy independence and responding to rising energy prices in Europe. There is therefore an urgent need to rapidly upgrade the EU building stock to become self-sufficient on renewable energy generated on-site. Bringing together the cities of Istanbul (Turkey), Barcelona (Spain), Velenje (Slovenia), Vila Nova de Gaia (Portugal), Nuremberg (Germany) and Eilat (Israel), the Horizon 2020 project procuRE is investing in R&D services to develop a replicable, platform-like approach to bring buildings to 100% RES quickly in one renovation project.

This event presents the results so far from procuRE, the innovative funding instrument Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP), and the selected approaches to tackle the challenge of upgrading existing buildings to use 100% RES. Procurers, suppliers and preferred partner cities will meet at this event to discuss interactively with the audience how procuRE can contribute to REPowerEU, what easily replicable solutions can be used to quickly upgrade buildings to become self-sufficient on renewable energy generated on-site, and how other cities can make use of the project’s results by becoming preferred partner cities.
