EU-funded project releases online tools for searching tenders related to Renewable Energy Sources

20 May 2020

XPRESS facilitates the collaboration between SMEs and public sector for the adoption of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) in EU regions.

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)
An easier way to discover past and future tenders embracing RES technologies
The user-friendly 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.

The two tools combined are meant to increase demand and supply sides of RES technologies across the EU, as a result of research performed by the XPRESS Consortium based on 2015 and 2017 Flash Innobarometer and Eurobarometer datasets; TED (Tenders Electronic Daily) dataset; EUROSTAT dataset on LCA; a survey to be launched on the XPRESS portal; XPRESS co-creation workshops and more than 20 case studies.

Within the XPRESS portal, public procurers will discover RES technologies and solutions of which they were not aware and SMEs will be able to enter new markets and offer their innovative solutions to public authorities.
