ETL’s new Net Zero Carbon delivery procurement framework is now live and off to an impressive start with a surge in demand and supply. The Framework supports public sector bodies in their bid to reduce carbon emissions in line with legislative and sector-led reduction targets. 

Alexandra Hammond, Sustainability Director at ETL commented: “It’s now a case of first in, best dressed. Uptake has been fast within the public sector and suppliers have been keen to back the framework.

“Its popularity sends a clear message that public sector organisations are taking their obligation to reach Net Zero seriously ahead of 2050. The Framework is free to access for the public sector, risk minimising and easy to access for all organisations, so those looking for a speedy and compliant route to market for low or zero carbon technology should really take advantage of this opportunity.”

The following lots are available to access through the Framework:

  • All-encompassing technologies: A one-stop approach enabling clients to procure holistic low/zero carbon technology solutions. All technologies are available through this lot.
  • Heating and renewables: Access to a range of heating and/or renewable technologies, including: Solar PV and Solar thermal technology, Electric Vehicle charging points, air and ground source heat pump technology, power storage and voltage optimisation, low carbon heat networks and wind and biomass technology.
  • Metering: metering and submetering of electricity, gas, heat, water, air, steam, and onsite power generation. Intelligent building metering can also be included.
  • Building management systems: the design, supply, install, service and maintenance of BMS.

Available nationwide, the Framework provides a model for public sector bodies to follow when looking to implement low/zero carbon technologies. Organisations looking to form a robust partnership with a delivery partner to get projects over the line will find it invaluable as it provides a one stop solution with a list of pre-approved suppliers, ready to go terms and conditions plus project and specification support.

Focusing on technology, installation and delivery, it has been particularly popular with metering, lighting and integrated technology projects. In addition, it is open to private sector organisations looking to source pre-approved suppliers. 

The Framework also assists public sector organisations to meet the criteria that is necessary to meet the terms for grant funding from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This grant fund, now closed for applications, has funded hundreds of public sector organisations to deliver energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation projects, and the Net Zero Carbon Delivery Framework provides a mechanism for a quick and robust route to market. 

Alexandra Hammond added: “There are several alternative and flexible sources of funding available, such as loans offered by Salix. ETL can support with applications and support our clients throughout the process of funding, procurement and delivery.”
