PROBIS calls for members to join Buyers Group

19 November 2014

The Procuring Building Innovative Solutions (PROBIS) project, which aims to increase the energy efficiency and sustainability of European public buildings, is calling for public authorities and and companies to get involved. PROBIS is seeking members to join the project Buyers Group, and to potentially participate in project activities.

Led by Environment Park in Turin (Italy), the project is supported by ICLEI with targeted dissemination and networking activities linked to the Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) Platform. Four PPI tenders will be launched within the project in three different European Union Member States. The tenders will focus on building innovative solutions in the following areas: envelope components (ENV); energy generation and distribution systems (EGD); and energy management systems (EMS). The selected solutions will be implemented and tested inside four pilot buildings in Miskolc (Hungary), Torino (Italy), Borlänge (Sweden) and the Lombardy Region (Italy). Different building typologies will be covered, including office buildings and social housing of different ages, to provide scope for replication of solutions at EU level.

Members of the Buyers Group will receive periodic updates of the project’s progress, have the opportunity to visit a PROBIS pilot project, and be involved in shaping the legal framework for PPI. Importantly, members are invited to attend dedicated technical seminars and dissemination events, and join the discussions on sustainable construction and shaping the project outcomes.
