The national energy efficiency programme for the public sector provides energy retrofit solutions and energy generation measures to the public sector across England and Wales. The Framework is used to procure Energy performance contracts, reduce energy and carbon and support the UK’s commitment to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Re:fit programme is a procurement initiative for public bodies wishing to implement energy efficiency measures and local energy generation projects on their assets, with support to assist in the development and delivery of the schemes. These measures improve the energy performance of assets. As a result, carbon emissions can be reduced, substantial guaranteed annual cost savings achieved, and income generated. The Framework uses a robust, flexible and tested Energy Performance Contracting approach. The programme helps by enabling organisations, such as local authorities, schools, universities, hospitals, leisure centres and museums, to implement retrofit projects and achieve considerable financial savings.
The Framework commenced in April 2020 and runs for a 4-year term covering public sector organisations from schools and universities, to local authorities, NHS sites and government departments, amongst others.
Richard Smith, Strategic Solution Director for SPIE UK, commented, “As a smart engineering and technology-driven solutions provider for the built environment, we are extremely pleased to have secured a place on The National Framework for Energy Performance Contracting (Re:fit) which will further enhance our track record of delivering sustainable Energy Solutions to our clients .”
