The European Commission has singled out decarbonisation as a key objective for the European Union and in November last year it published a proposal on the Clean Vehicle Directive, aiming to boost the electrification of European mobility. For public authorities, however, how can public procurement be used to encourage the uptake of alternatively fuelled vehicles in Europe? This was the focus point of the most recent SPICE webinar, held on 24th January and attended by twenty-six participants. The webinar included a general introduction into the SPICE project and two presentations – one from Mr Dario Dubolino (European Commission, DG MOVE) and the other from Ms Eva Sunnerstedt (City of Stockholm). Presentations from the webinar are available in the links below.

A news item about the webinar is available here.
