How can you participate?
If you’re a non-profit organisation and run energy poverty projects, electrical rehabilitation projects for social purposes, or educational projects involving an electrical or lighting installation, you can use the CIRCULAR PLACE social marketplace to find free products donated by producers, distributors, and manufacturers of these materials.
You can play a part in the social marketplace in two ways:
1. Browsing the available product offers and requesting their donation, after describing the project in which you’d use them.
2. Uploading the projects you currently run at your non-profit organisation so that the producers and distributors on the platform can analyse whether they’re interested in the project and the products they can donate.
To play a part in CIRCULAR PLACE, you need to meet some minimum requirements and complete the pre-registration form.
If your pre-registration request is accepted, you’ll receive an email explaining what you need to do to complete the registration process.
Once registered, you can enter CIRCULAR PLACE and request products or upload projects.
