Xpress – an EU-funded project under Horizon 2020 R&I programme – provides support to Public Procurements to facilitate the collaboration between SMEs and public sector for the adoption of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) in EU regions.
To achieve this objective, XPRESS launches two online tools for SMEs and public authorities:
- A RES tender search engine to facilitate SMEs’ access to tenders embracing Renewable Energy Sources
- A database of past SME-friendly RES tenders for public authorities willing to adopt RES technologies via Green Public Procurement (GPP)
The Xpress RES tender search engine allows users to find the most recent calls for tenders published on TED (Tenders Electronic Daily), according to a tailored set of CPV codes (contract topics), keywords, deadline, country and type of document.
The second Xpress tool is meant to encourage public buyers to implement Green Public Procurement with a set of more than 3900 SME-friendly tenders embracing RES published from 2016 to 2018, stored in an online database on Xpress platform. All past tenders can be searched according to keywords, CPV code, budget range, year and country.
