ESPO announce the launch of Renewable Energy Solutions framework (2838)
Renewable Energy Solutions is a new framework that gives public sector bodies in the UK a procurement regulation compliant way to purchase the supply and installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and/or consultancy and project management for all types of renewable energy solutions.
This comes at a time of growing importance of renewable energy: following the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive, the UK is aiming for 15% of all energy from renewable sources by 2020. The Department of Energy and Climate Change have announced that to achieve this, 30% of electricity will come from renewable sources, 12% of heat will come from renewable sources, and 10% of transport fuel will come from renewable sources.

The framework is divided into the following lots:
The supply and installation of solar PV systems (primarily focused on systems up to 50kW electricity). All the suppliers on this lot are Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) accredited.
This lot this is accessed through a further competition route, due to unique nature of each project. ESPO can help throughout this process and provide the necessary further competition documents.
Consultancy and project management for all types of renewable energy solutions, including but not limited to electricity (solar PVs, wind turbines, small-scale hydro), heat (solar thermal, biomass boilers, air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps) and combined heat and power (CHP)
Consultants can provide advice and support with all types of renewable energy solutions, and can be as hands-on or -off as the customer wants. This also means that as new technologies enter the market they will be accessible through the framework.
Customers can call-off immediately using the information in the user guide, meaning a quick and easy way to access these services, or can conduct further competitions, which ESPO can help with as necessary.
