The UK Goverment’s Crown Commercial service, which has the largest energy contract in the country, has renewed it’s agreement with EDF Energy.
The contract, which is over 4 years, will supply electricity to around 8,000 public buildings and sites across central and local government – a total of 9.6TWh of electricity every year which is enough to power 2.3 million homes.
This includes the NHS, the Highway’s Agency, schools and historic buildings such as the National Gallery.
Public sector customers will also be offered expert advice on energy efficiency as part of the deal.
Matt Denham, Executive Director – Commercial Delivery at the Crown Commercial Service said: “Awarded following a competitive tender process, it will deliver improved value for the taxpayer whilst helping customers to use energy more efficiently and manage their demand to reduce their overall energy costs.”
