EAEB Project - Role Playing Workshop
Other - Workshop Report, 2017

The introduction of electric buses in the public transport system, generates new demands and requirements on the procurement process – i.e. managing building permits, electricity connection, coordinating chargers use and ensuring long-term cost-effectiveness among others. The technology has started to mature, but the planning and procurement phase can slow down the advent of electric buses significantly. The complexity is also high since many actors are called to collaborate in ways which the present procurement models and business models does not necessarily support. Developing the competencies and procurement process for this transition to succeed is difficult, since no one player can decide on their own how to modify the procurement process and business models to fit electric buses.
The EAEB project therefore wants to support a dialogue on how procurement can be run - to get a better understanding of alternative solutions - without making decisions on the issue. For that a workshop was organised and carried out with a view to organising a larger one with the participation of more actors. This report document the results from that workshop.
