Roadnight Taylor appointed as a Crown Commercial Service supplier
We’re pleased to announce our appointment onto Crown Commercial Service’s Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) agreement. As well as meaning public sector bodies can procure from Roadnight Taylor more easily and with greater confidence, we are now part of the Government’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) sourcing tool.
Hugh Taylor, CEO, says. “We’ve been through a rigorous selection process and credit check before being appointed onto the DPS, and are excited that the public sector can now more readily access the levels of niche expertise, objectivity and professionalism that other sectors of the economy have been for the last five years. Taking the right independent advice is fundamental to delivering best value for taxpayers, and to making spend on decarbonisation initiatives stretch further.”
He continues, “The public sector plays a significant role in driving down carbon emissions, and public sector bodies can also help the public purse by reducing their energy costs and generating substantial incomes from their land, property and energy assets.
“Whether your organisation is taking initial steps or seeking to take advantage of the latest and innovative opportunities, identifying and prioritising the best projects can be complex. From low-cost feasibility studies, investment appraisals and financial modelling for new renewable generation, energy storage or heat systems through to making recommendations to optimise the financial performance and returns of existing energy technologies across their estates and property portfolios, we’re confident our team of experts and our independent approach can help our public sector clients meet their energy objectives.”
What is HELGA?
Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2018/19, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth £945m – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
The HELGA agreement allows public sector bodies to cost-effectively procure a range of services to optimise energy demand management and take advantage of income generation opportunities from market leading suppliers. The agreement has been developed with energy demand management in mind but also offers access to a range of other services including, but not limited to, electricity and heat generation, heat networks, power and heat purchase agreements and energy feasibility studies.
This agreement can be used by all UK government and public sector bodies which includes central Government departments, devolved administrations, local authorities, NHS bodies, universities, colleges and schools.
