Our focus is to support Scotland's transition to a low carbon economy and help it reach its climate change targets. Not only does our work generate cost and carbon savings, but it supports local economic development and improves the quality of public buildings and assets.
Given the sheer scale of the Scottish public sector estate (equivalent in size to approximately 4,000 football pitches), a huge opportunity exists for the public sector to implement energy efficiency programmes to secure massive savings.
We, along with Scottish Government, set up the Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency (NDEE) framework, the purpose of which is to provide the public sector access to a range of suppliers that meet the breadth of requirements needed by Scotland's public sector.
So far, the framework has seen 10 projects progress to procurement that will generate guaranteed savings of more than £20m.
