The Big Buyers Secretariat is hosting a Webinar on "Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles for Waste Collection and Street Cleaning'' on 21 March 2023, 11:00-12:00 CET. This is the second event in a cycle of webinars (organised by DG Grow) on the achievements of the Big Buyers Project that assesses how public buyers can drive the market through public procurement. This second event focuses on the Working Group that tackled how to procure ''Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles for Waste Collection and Street Cleaning'' and will present a report on lessons learnt from the collaboration between the cities involved and their market gap analysis to encourage the roll-out of heavy duty electric vehicles in European cities.
The objective of the Big Buyers Project is to promote collaboration between public buyers across the EU in implementing strategic procurement for sustainable solutions. Assessment of the needs of participants resulted in the creation of four working groups, dealing with Zero Emission Construction Sites, Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles, Circular Construction, and Digital Solutions in the Healthcare Sector. To prepare for the launch of the third edition of this initiative, DG GROW has organised a cycle of webinars entitled ''Driving Markets through Public Procurement: the Big Buyers Project'', which focus on the achievements of the working groups and on their next steps.
