Appointments to UK CCS Procurement Framework

Contract Awards, Sourcing & Procurement, Public Sector, EMEA, Service Provider News, United Kingdom

Mitie has been appointed as a supplier on two Crown Commercial Service (CCS) agreements on Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS) and Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA).

 

The VCIS agreement allows public sector organisations to easily access suppliers providing electric vehicle (EV) charge point infrastructure and solutions. This includes consultancy, charge point installation and maintenance services for public spaces, such as on-street parking and car parks, as well as public sector buildings. With access to charge points a key barrier for EV drivers, this appointment will allow Mitie to share its first-hand experience transitioning its own fleet to electric and installing over 600 charge points, in order to support the UK’s switch to electric vehicles.

 

The HELGA agreement meanwhile covers a range of energy solutions, from supporting with energy purchase agreements and auditing, to delivering decarbonisation projects and improving building efficiency. The appointment to the HELGA agreement provides Mitie with the opportunity to share its sustainability and energy management expertise with the public sector. In the financial year 2019/20, Mitie saved over 300,000 tonnes of CO2 for customers, important progress which is vital to achieve net zero targets.

 

The appointment are in line with the company's Plan Zero commitment to support organisations in achieving their own net zero objectives. Through its Plan Zero Fleet Transition Service, Mitie is helping clients switch to electric and manage their charge point infrastructure. Meanwhile, its Zero Carbon for Zero Cost Service helps businesses implement solutions to improve buildings’ energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and cut costs.

 

Simon Venn, Chief Government & Strategy Officer, says:

“Helping other organisations achieve their net zero targets is a central part of our Plan Zero commitment. Joining these two agreements provides the opportunity to share our electric vehicle and energy management expertise to help public sector organisations on their journey to net zero.”
