Retrofit and Decarbonisation Framework (N9)

Designed to support the public sector in its journey to net zero, the N9 framework will deliver a range of energy efficiency and decarbonisation works, and energy efficiency consultancy services.

N9 will help improve asset and stock ratings using a range of specialist energy efficiency measures and works, such as solar PV and heat pumps, as well as combined solutions meeting PAS 2035 requirements for whole house retrofit. The tender for this framework is expected to bean released in spring 2024.

“Following an extensive pre-tender engagement with the market and seeing high levels of interest and feedback; we are now in the final stages of design and development of the replacement to our current iteration of our energy efficiency framework. The fantastic response and levels of engagement we have seen from the market, subsequently enables us to have a good understanding of the challenges facing the sector in decarbonising the UK's existing built environment and are developing a comprehensive and flexible solution, to help our clients address this.”
