Procurement organisation and social enterprise body Fusion21 has launched a national Heating and Renewables Framework which could be worth up to £500 million over a four-year period. The launch is set for January 2020; submission deadline is 20th November 2019.

The framework is designed to meet the needs of all public sector members in the housing, education, local authority and central government sectors. The framework provides domestic and commercial solutions with a lot strategy that will offer a range of services from consultancy to design, servicing, maintenance and installation.

The framework includes a range of renewable technology applications from air and ground source heat pumps to solar thermal, electric heating and hot water systems. It can be used for a range of different installations including district heating systems and heat interface units.

The framework is split into ten lots, which features an education-specific lot in partnership with the Department for Education to support schools, colleges, academies and higher education establishments with heating requirements.

Peter Francis, Director of Operations at Fusion21, said: “This compliant procurement solution has been developed in response to market demand – reflecting feedback from both our members and the supply chain. This framework will also support members to install a range of sustainable heating solutions tailored to their requirements. Members accessing this framework will benefit from greater efficiencies, support from technical procurement experts and an experienced supply chain.”
