Public sector procurement body Fusion21 has announced the list of suppliers appointed to its £750 million four-year national Decarbonisation Framework.
Following a competitive tender process, 50 specialist firms – including SMEs and multinational suppliers, have won places on the framework, developed by the social enterprise body for public sector organisations across the UK to access - including housing associations, local authorities, NHS trusts, blue-light organisations and education providers.
The framework supports the design and delivery of energy-efficiency measures, combining contracts that can deliver thermal fabric improvements, heating and renewables, power and building management systems.
The lots are:
- Lot 1: Whole-house Decarbonisation (worth up to £500 million) – provides solutions for whole-house energy-efficiency measures to PAS2035:2019 standards, including fabric insulation, ventilation systems and renewable technologies, such as air source heat pumps and solar PV.
- Lot 2: Decarbonisation of Public & Education Buildings (worth up to £250 million) – offers solutions for energy-efficiency measures to non-domestic buildings in the UK, including fabric, renewables, building management system and controls, and improvement works to the new PAS2038:2021 standard.
Under the framework, appointed suppliers will be PAS2035:2019-compliant and Trustmark-accredited.
Peter Francis, Fusion21’s director of operations, said: “From the decarbonisation of homes and neighbourhoods to energy-efficient educational buildings and healthcare estates, or the development of zero carbon facilities for the emergency services, this offer further expands upon the existing renewable and energy-efficient solutions we have available.
“Whether incorporated into existing asset management strategies or applied to complex multi-measure schemes, we can help members to develop their own net zero roadmap, reducing emissions, maximising cost savings and capitalising on achieving social targets.”
