A clear view on legal issues
Today, June 17, Stephan Corvers introduced the participants of the event “Towards interregional collaboration on hydrogen coaches” in Brussels to public procurement of innovation. In his presentation entitled “Accelerating the deployment of hydrogen related solutions: the role of public procurements” Stephan gave insight into how public procurement can be used to accelerate the deployment of zero emission mobility solutions.
The event took place in Brussels and was organised back-to-back with the EU Sustainable Energy Week. Organising parties of the event were Région SUD Provence - Alpes Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Fédération Nationale du Transport de Voyageurs (FNTV) and Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The event aimed at bringing together regional authorities and bus manufacturers to identify Regions willing to invest in hydrogen coaches; gather inputs from the industry about the current development state and needs to further develop hydrogen coaches, possible schedule of commercialization, purchase cost and total cost of ownership targets; identify areas and tools for collaboration at European level.
