4 EXPERT PARTNERS
of 33 GWH PER YEAR
Birmingham (UK), Budapest (Hungary), Castelló & Valencia (Spain) and Wrocław (Poland) are joining efforts to look for more sustainable energy solutions through a pro-innovation procurement approach. Under the umbrella of the EU-funded CEPPI project, these five cities will demonstrate that by selectively intervening in scheduled public tenders, energy consumption can be reduced. The goal of this 3-year project is to save at least 33GWh/year and to develop the capacity of public authorities to implement innovation procurement solutions for energy-related projects. The CEPPI Cities aspire to adopt a leadership role in their regions.
