A leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, today (5/20) announced that for the second consecutive version of the framework, it has been named a prequalified supplier under Scotland's Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency (NDEE) framework. Ameresco will build on its successful work delivered under the previous version of the framework, which included energy efficiency projects at four colleges across Scotland and several Local Authorities; totaling over £7.5m of investment in carbon reduction technologies.
The NDEE framework delivers energy efficiency projects for the Scottish public sector, including Local Authorities, Universities and Colleges, Healthcare and other public bodies. Projects delivered under the framework are based on an Energy Performance Contract (EnPC) that guarantees energy savings. During the last framework, Ameresco's UK team completed EnPC projects at Edinburgh College, Borders College, Newbattle Abbey College, West Lothian College, Midlothian Council and West Lothian Council.
"We were delighted to benefit from energy efficiency upgrades as a result of the NDEE framework projects," said Gordon Pollock, Project Director in Property and Facilities Management, Midlothian Council. "The project investment has allowed us to address our building infrastructure needs, resulting in energy savings that free up needed funds and a significant reduction in carbon emissions."
In addition to energy savings and utility costs, Scotland's public sector organisations benefit from efficiency projects delivered under the NDEE framework in that they defer future maintenance of building infrastructure and support Scotland's climate change goals by lowering carbon emissions.
"Our team has delivered transformational energy efficiency and renewable energy benefits to public sector organisations using the Scottish NDEE framework," said Britta MacIntosh, Ameresco Vice President of UK Operations. "We are honoured to have been prequalified again this year as a preferred supplier in this program and look forward to working together with public sector clients to help them meet their climate change goals."
