How much will the framework help public sector organisations reduce their energy consumption as a %?

The level of savings will depend on the scale of the opportunity within each organisation (land and building assets) and previous energy projects undertaken. The Re:fit teams typically see savings between 20-30% but this will vary dependant on the type of project proposed. This can include the following types of projects:

-        large infrastructures

-        backlog maintenance

-        optimising existing sites

-        quick fix/ fast track projects


This framework has helped reduce energy consumption for public sector organisations

See stats below

50,000 tonnes of CO2 saved each year

100+ MWH energy saved each year

£180m total investment in retrofit projects

This framework agreement helps by enabling a range of public sector organisations, including local authorities, schools, universities, National Health Service (NHS), leisure centres and museums, to implement retrofit projects and achieve large financial savings through two principal means:

·      a framework of 16 pre-qualified providers required to adhere to pre-agreed core contract terms (which saves time and resources for public sector organisations seeking to procure retrofit works and guarantee energy savings)

·      three expert teams (one specific to London and one covering the rest of England and Wales) which provide the end-to-end support needed to get projects up and running and successfully implemented.


The Re:fit framework streamlines the procurement process for energy services by providing a set of model terms and conditions (compiled by legal, technical and procurement specialists with previous experience of Re:fit, which are on market and reflect best practice in the sector) for use with a group of pre-qualified providers. The Service Provider designs and implements Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs), which enables public sector bodies to cut running costs and energy consumption and carbon emissions, and can also, through energy generation, enable income generation. The Service Provider GUARANTEES the level of energy savings, thus offering a secure financial saving over the period of the agreement.
