Decision details

Retrofit Accelerator Programme for Corporate Assets

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Council has been utilising technical support from the Mayor of London’s Retrofit Accelerator Programme Delivery Unit to benchmark energy information, identify potential carbon and financial savings from the Council’s corporate estate and provide indicative energy savings, funding streams and payback periods for retrofitting its greatest energy consuming assets to help towards 2030 carbon neutral targets.


The Cabinet will be asked to approve a route to market using Retrofit Accelerator’s OJEU-compliant framework of pre-qualified energy service providers to run a mini-competition to appoint a suitable service provider. The bid will ask for a response to our specification and allow the Council to assess the bidders’ capability, pricing, costs for investment grade proposals, general approach to our corporate buildings retrofit project and potential borrowing through Salix.


Cabinet resolved to:


(i)   Agree to use the Retrofit Accelerator Framework to support the Council’s general retrofitting programme and develop the Partner Bid tender to procure a suitable service provider to devise High Level Appraisals for retrofitting corporate assets; and


(ii)   Delegate authority to the Director of Inclusive Growth, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Social Housing and the Director of Law and Governance, to enter into the contracts and all other necessary or ancillary agreements set out in this report.
