Invitation to EVC suppliers: Online market dialogue on the ‘Circular Procurement of EVCs’
24 Apr 2023, 14:00-16:00
The City of Malmö, as a partner of the ProCirc project, and together with Circular Flanders and Rijkwaterstaat, is pleased to invite suppliers of electric vehicle chargers (EVCs) to an online market dialogue to explore the future of the industry. The event is organised by ICLEI Europe.
As demand for electric vehicles grows, the environmental impact of the EVC life-cycle risks being overlooked. To address this, Malmö, in the context of the ProCirc project, is leading the production of a joint statement of demand (JSD) on EVCs to establish a set of common standards for circular EVC procurement and strengthen public authority ambitions for future EVC purchasing.
As part of the JSD development process, a market dialogue will be held to better understand the current situation and future plans of the EVC sector. The session will convene public buyers and EVC suppliers to exchange views, share needs, discuss solutions and prepare recommendations.
Suppliers of EVCs are welcome to join the online market dialogue event where they will have the opportunity to meet and exchange with public purchasers from around Europe, pitch their product(s) and/or service(s), and hear the high-ambition circular asks from a dedicated purchasing group.
This event will take place online over MS Teams. The following elements will be included in this two-hour event:
- Introduction to the online market engagement event.
- Public sector innovation needs and procurement plans, featuring presentations by public authority representatives.
- Pitching of ideas and solutions, with presentations of pitches by EVC suppliers.
- Group discussion with public buyers and suppliers on circular EVC topics.
- Closing remarks and conclusions.
