About Pro-EE


The project pro-EE aims to improve energy efficiency through sustainable public procurement. Pro-EE focuses on innovative products with higher economical and technical energy saving potential and develop model procedures and networking approaches, which can be implemented by any public authority in Europe.

With this goal, pro-EE wants to:

  • Bring suppliers and consumers together to agree on specific products and develop strategies for their distribution, thereby sharing the risks and benefits of developing new products and fostering the innovation process.

  • Set up a partnership between market actors in six European countries to devise innovative procedures for public authorities and thus influence suppliers of energy efficient products and services.

  • Implement these procedures in pilot cities.


One central outcome of pro-EE are experiential recommendations for the integration of sustainable procurement approaches and strategies into the policies of local and regional authorities.
