Workshop

Upscaling Hydrogen Gensets in European Cities

Back-to-back with the 9th General Assembly of the FCH JU Regions & Cities Initiative

ICLEI Europe, in cooperation with the EVERYWH2ERE project, is organising a city-oriented workshop on “Upscaling Hydrogen Genets in European Cities”. The event will highlight modern Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) technologies as clean alternatives to fossil fuel generators in providing energy for construction sites, festivals, harbours and other temporary urban events.

With European cities driving the decarbonisation of transport, urban heating and cooling, industries and services forward, the workshop will focus on how FCH technologies as a clean alternative to diesel-based generator equipment can support cities in reaching their climate and energy targets, reduce emissions and noise and increase air quality.

This workshop will offer:

  • an understanding of how hydrogen generator sets (gensets) can be a viable alternative to diesel generators
  • a platform to exchange on the necessary regulatory frameworks for deploying hydrogen gensets in city areas
    the opportunity to speak about and promote your own innovative decarbonisation measures
  • The workshop will also serve as an entry point for becoming part of the EVERYWH2ERE Regions & Cities Interest Group to explore options for hosting hydrogen generator sets and to profit from tools and long-term recommendations generated throughout the project.

Training

Awarding, Selection and Exclusion Criteria in Public Procurement

Awarding Criteria in Green Public Procurement • Evaluation Matrix • Socially Responsible Public Procurement

Berlin

Advanced hands-on experience, operative know-how and thorough knowledge of procedures and risks are necessary to ensure clear, effective and reliable procurement procedures. Efficient procurement procedures require more flexibility, transparency and fulfilment of high qualitative, environmental, social and innovation standards. Yet, many contracting authorities still favour lowest price criteria as the safest and fastest procedure. As many examples prove that the lowest price does not always mean lowest costs, this model gradually disappears and is being replaced by extended requirements and criteria.

Über den Tellerrand geschaut: Nachhaltige ITK Beschaffung in Schottland – Ansätze, Instrumente und Erfahrungen

The webinar will be used to provide insights into the various sustainable procurement approaches and tools that APUC uses in its work. These include topics such as the fundamental understanding and handling of sustainability in procurement, the Sustain database, market engagement processes and concrete tendering practices.
 
The webinar will consist of two parts:
 
1. APUC - innovative sustainable public procurement
Ricarda Bieke will present key aspects of APUC's work on sustainable procurement.
 
Ricarda Bieke has been with APUC for more than 5 years and currently works as Responsible Procurement Manager on various sustainable sourcing projects.
 
2. Questions and answers
Participants have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss ideas.
 
 
As an independent monitoring organization, Electronics Watch helps public sector bodies to live up to their responsibility for the rights and safety of workers who are part of their supply chain for electronic products. According to experience, public institutions manage to do this better than if they were on their own.
