Following a formal procurement procedure, Ellipse Energy were successfully awarded a formal contract to complete Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for Oxford City Council.
We made up a team of three contractors, carefully selected by Oxford City Council to complete a rapid energy efficiency audit of their properties with the aim to improving their existing housing stock with a variety of energy saving measures to reduce fuel poverty, provide warmer and healthier homes whilst also reducing carbon emissions.
Upon award our team of Domestic Energy Assessors (DEA) attended a two-hour orientation session with Oxford City Council and met with their Local Authority Project Team to finalise contracts for our latest public sector tender win. The meeting was incredibly useful as it gave both parties the opportunity to ensure that we defined and agreed delivery requirements in-line with the contract, including timescales and other contract key performance indicators (KPIs).
Suppliers responding to this opportunity were asked to carefully consider how their response could align with the Council’s corporate priorities which are:
Our submission clearly demonstrated, through our proven track record and case studies, that we were able to deliver all project requirements. It also gave confidence that we have the resource and skills required to deliver the contract within the strict timescales to allow the Council to meet their objectives and strategic targets.
The heat is on for householders with the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Householders could be paid hundreds of pounds a year for generating heat by solar thermal panels, biomass boilers and heat pumps.
