£250m four-year national framework for energy efficiency launched

A national Energy Efficiency Framework worth up to £250 Million over a four-year period has been launched in the UK by procurement organisation and social enterprise Fusion21.

The new framework is specifically designed to meet the needs of the public sector, including housing associations, NHS trusts, bluelight organisations, education providers, local authorities and central government.

The program is set to offer external and internal wall insulation, the design, maintenance and installation of domestic and non-domestic solar photovoltaic systems, battery storage and solar carparks, plus cladding replacement, electric vehicle charging points and LED lighting.

Split into seven lots, the framework is aiming to provide regional coverage and will facilitate local delivery. It has been structured to enable suppliers, including SMEs and specialist contractors, to bid for works suited to their capability, experience and expertise.

Peter Francis, Director of Operation at Fusion21 explains that the framework has been developed “in response to market and member feedback.”

“We’ve developed this flexible procurement solution to help Fusion21 members achieve energy efficiency outcomes – including reduced carbon emissions and increased cost savings.

“These benefits contribute to supporting the government’s decarbonisation agenda and will also positively impact upon the carbon footprint of organisations, the wider environment and residents living in domestic properties.

“Offering flexible call-off options, organisations calling off this compliant framework will gain access to support from technical procurement experts, social value delivery tailored to organisational priorities and a rigorously accessed and experienced supply chain.”
