Fusion21 announces £250m energy efficiency framework


Health trusts can gain access to a raft of services including LED lighting, battery storage, solar photovaltaic systems, and wall insulation


Procurement organisation, Fusion21, has announced the launch of its national Energy Efficiency Framework – worth up to £250million over a four-year period.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of the public sector – including hospitals, mental health facilities, health care surgeries, nursing and other care homes – the framework offers external and internal wall insulation; the design, maintenance and installation of domestic and non-domestic solar photovoltaic systems, battery storage and solar carparks; plus cladding replacement, electric vehicle charging points and LED lighting.

Split into seven lots, the framework provides regional coverage and will facilitate local delivery.

It has been structured to enable suppliers, including SMEs and specialist contractors, to bid for works suited to their capability, experience and expertise.

Peter Francis, director of operations at Fusion21, said: “In response to market and member feedback, we’ve developed this flexible procurement solution to help Fusion21 members achieve energy-efficiency outcomes – including reduced carbon emissions and increased cost savings.

“These benefits contribute to supporting the Government’s decarbonisation agenda and will also positively impact upon the carbon footprint of organisations, the wider environment, and residents living in domestic properties.

“Offering flexible call-off options, organisations using this compliant framework will gain access to support from technical procurement experts, social value delivery tailored to organisational priorities and a rigorously-assessed and experienced supply chain.”
