Renewable Energy Sector - Powered To Supply Government

An ambitious new agreement is set to increase public sector renewable energy sourcing. Powered by the new Dynamic Purchasing System, the agreement is expected to generate an £800 million spend.

The public sector currently accounts for around 2% of UK greenhouse gas emissions but the government is committed to reducing this figure.

The OJEU contract notice for HELGA (Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets) Dynamic Purchasing System is now live for suppliers. It will help public bodies and the wider public sector to find the right suppliers for solar panels, wind turbines, heat networks, battery storage and more.

The system supports the government aim to maintain and improve UK energy security. The way it has been designed also helps level the playing field for small and medium-sized businesses by allowing large schemes to be broken into smaller, more biddable projects.

 

Each customer using the system will be able to select from a range of services:

  • Energy Advisory, Design and Technical Services - technical services relating to advice and design of any demand management or generation type.

  • Delivery Services - delivery services to install, manage and maintain any demand management or generation type.

  • Energy Purchase Agreement - provision of Energy Purchase Agreements through direct or indirect opportunities.

  • Commoditised Products - Access to Commoditised Products through bulk purchasing.

  • One Stop Shop - a one-stop-shop solution to deliver full end-to-end advisory, design, delivery, energy purchase agreements and commoditised products.

 

Crown Commercial Service

Adam Garbutt, Category Lead for Utilities and Fuels at the Crown Commercial Service said: “This is a brand new agreement and is unlike anything else we have produced before. It will allow energy companies, both large and small, to assist in providing the new types of energy sources needed to make UK public services cleaner, greener and more secure.”
