AI4Cities invites AI suppliers to submit their solutions to accelerate carbon neutrality

AI4Cities, an EU-funded Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP), has launched its Request for Tenders (RfT). Tenderers are invited to submit innovative AI solutions in the fields of energy and mobility. These solutions should contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the six cities and regions involved in the project: Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark), Helsinki (Finland), Île-de-France – Paris Region (France), Stavanger (Norway) and Tallinn (Estonia). The call is open until next February, 28.

The six cities and regions have developed ambitious strategies and policy plans to become carbon neutral by – at latest – 2050. AI4Cities aims to help accelerate their transition to carbon neutrality by utilising artificial intelligence and related enabling technologies – such as big data applications, 5G, edge computing and IoT – to find innovative solutions contributing to the reduction of CO2  and other greenhouse gas emissions. These solutions will address energy- and mobility-related challenges as these two domains are responsible for 82% of GHG emissions in European cities. 

Potential suppliers can submit offers in two lots - Lot 1, Mobility and Lot 2, Energy. The PCP will be split in three phases, a solution design phase (Phase 1), a prototyping phase (Phase 2) and a piloting phase (Phase 3). 

The tenderers’ offers will be evaluated by the Buyers Group, consisting of Forum Virium Helsinki, representing the City of Helsinki, the City of Amsterdam, the City of Copenhagen, the City of Stavanger, the City of Tallinn and Cap Digital, which represents the Paris Region. Forum Virium Helsinki is the Lead Procurer.
