The BRINC project organised a dialogue meeting with Parkering Malmö on 17 November 2023, to present and discuss existing solutions and solutions under development for Circular Electrical Vehicle Chargers (EVCs).

Parkering Malmö (P-Malmö) are during their next procurement planning to buy almost 200 EVCs and in the upcoming years planning to buy 2 000-3 000 EVCs. The environmental aspect of EVCs is extremely important for P-Malmö and therefore they want to know if any of you suppliers have thoughts about the overall issue to minimize waste from EVCs. Especially how you think about compatibility, and the possibility of replacing components to increase lifespan. But also how the waste is handled, both the waste that is produced during the making of the EVC but also the waste from worn-out EVCs. In summary, if there are solutions for:

  • Prolonging the lifespan through flexibility in software upgrades/changes
  • Prolonging the lifespan through modularity facilitating repairs
  • Systems/declarations for retake (even product-as-a-service) and/or recyclability of EVCs

Other public actors joined in the meeting: ADDA who contracts businesses for a great many of the municipalities in Sweden, Region Örebro län who are in the forefront in procurements of EVCs in Sweden, Ecostandard who sets the standards that are ending up as demands in procurements and finally Cenex a non-for-profit organization accelerating the shift to low emission transport and energy solutions through projects that support innovation and market development in Europe.

During this dialogue meeting with P-Malmö, participants heard more about their challenges and had the opportunity to present their (potential) solution together with other companies.

The project BRINC - Brokering cross-border innovation through clusters brings together Public Authorities who are looking for circular solutions, with companies. In this way, the Public Authorities gain knowledge about which products and solutions the companies can offer, and/or the insight that their needs can be met in ways that they were previously unaware of. The project will unlock the potential of cross-border Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) by acting as an Innovation Procurement Broker and establishing a European hub for PPI in a circular economy. It will develop methodologies and build capacity for cross-border innovation brokering. The BRINC project is co-funded by the European Union's COSME program (Competitiveness of SMEs).
