Energy and regeneration company, ENGIE, has been appointed to the national Re:fit Energy Performance Contract framework
The national Re:fit Energy Performance Contract framework is a procurement initiative for public bodies wishing to implement energy efficiency measures and local energy generation projects on their assets.
In its forth iteration, the Re:fit 4 framework, co-owned and managed by Local Partnerships and the Greater London Authority (GLA) allows public sector bodies to achieve benefits through energy efficiency and generation projects.
Running for four years, it expects up to £500m of contracts to be let during this time.
ENGIE is already delivering several key projects through the previous Re:fit framework, including work with Milton Keynes Council to deliver a range of innovative energy improvements and carbon reduction initiatives to the council’s land and built assets.
‘Guaranteed energy savings’
Colin Macpherson, divisional CEO at ENGIE UK & Ireland, commented: “We are delighted to be appointed onto the Re:fit 4 framework where we can utilise our expertise and experience in delivering retrofit projects to create guaranteed energy savings.
“ENGIE is committed to working with public sector organisations to support them in their aims of a zero carbon future and improving wellbeing within communities across the UK.”
The Re:fit framework uses a robust, flexible and tested Energy Performance Contracting approach. Initially developed by the Greater London Authority in 2009, use of the framework is growing, with dedicated teams now supporting organisations across England and Wales.
The programme helps by enabling organisations, such as local authorities, schools, universities, hospitals, leisure centres and museums, to implement retrofit projects and achieve large financial savings.
Over 250 organisations have already engaged Re:fit. Over £180m of works has been procured across more than 1,000 buildings saving in excess of 52,000 tonnes of CO2 and £10m of energy costs each year. The current pipeline is over £91m and growing.
