Ex-ante publicity for a middle-value contract.

In light of the importance of the industry sector in terms of energy use for heating and cooling, the Commission expressed its intention in the EU Strategy on Heating and Cooling to engage with industry on energy efficiency and renewable energy. The envisaged instrument is roundtables with industry to discuss challenges and opportunities for further investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Since the purpose is to develop benchmarks/guidance for best practice that is directly usable for companies in the relevant sectors, sector specific work is required. The aim is therefore to hold separate roundtables with different industry sectors, starting with one sector to test and develop the concept.

The roundtables would be chaired by the Commission at service level, assisted by a moderator. This requested services will consist in the following 4 tasks:

  • Task 1: Selection of the most suitable sector to initiate roundtables with
  • Task 2: Organisation of the roundtables
  • Task 3: Develop benchmarks/guidance for best practice
  • Task 4: Assess the potential for applying the approach to other industry sectors
