Too few municipalities take advantage of the innovation that lies in collaborating with SMEs in public tenders. In XPRESS, European Green Cities has identified, with its European partners, the barriers and opportunities of the participation of SMEs in public procurement – aiming at promoting such participation. 

On June 3rd, European Green Cities and Energitjenesten will introduce the XPRESS-project and present its results of two concrete cases from Samsø, where the involvement of SMEs helped reach the decision of installing solar panels on treatment and district heating systems. 

The event will run from 12am-3pm at the Energy Academy, Strandengen 1, 8305 Samsø with a concurrent display of electric cars. The stakeholder café, where the cases are presented, will start at 1pm inside the Academy’s “cinema”.
