Re:fit | Local PartnershipsFeatured
The Re:fit programme is a procurement initiative for public bodies wishing to implement energy efficiency and local energy generation measures to their buildings or their estate, with support to assist you in the development and delivery of the schemes. These measures improve the energy performance of buildings. As a result, carbon emissions are reduced and substantial guaranteed annual cost savings are achieved.
The Re:fit framework uses a robust, flexible and tested Energy Performance Contracting approach. Initially developed by the Greater London Authority in 2009, use of the framework is growing, with dedicated teams now supporting organisations across England and Wales. The programme helps by enabling organisations, such as local authorities, schools, universities, hospitals, leisure centres and museums, to implement retrofit projects and achieve large financial savings.
Over 250 organisations have already engaged Re:fit. Over £180 million of works has been procured across more than 1000 buildings and the current pipeline is over £91 million and growing.
RE:FIT projects make guaranteed energy savings
The framework provides a guaranteed 100% of the energy saving or generation (kWh) via a contractual agreement for the payback period of the project, this key feature is helping to remove risk of failure with new developments, plus protecting the client and their investment.
Additional benefits include improvements to buildings’ operational performance and comfort levels for staff, reductions in building-related complaints and maintenance backlogs, a boost to local investment through local job creation, and important reductions in CO2 emissions.
