Scotland Excel’s energy efficiency contractors framework has been announced and ECD are one of the 46-UK based companies to be appointed! We are appointed to Lot 1 – Professional Services, projects will be awarded through both direct and mini-competition.

The framework has gone live to help councils and housing associations cut carbon emissions, tackle fuel poverty and create warmer homes.

It is a four year framework expected to be worth £800m.

Councillor John Shaw, convener of Scotland Excel, said: “I welcome the launch of this contract that will give councils and housing associations a one-stop-shop to a range of innovative energy efficiency measures. With sustainability at its core, it will underpin the Scottish government’s drive for net zero by 2045 by supporting councils and housing associations in their efforts to tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbons emissions.

“It will also bring significant opportunities for the businesses that have secured a place on the framework, which includes 37 Scottish suppliers – 33 of which are SMEs. I’m also pleased that we have improved and enhanced the framework from its first generation to support a rapidly growing market – and this includes introducing a new professional services lot.”

The framework will allow contractors to deliver a range of measures including wall, floor and loft insulation; windows and doors replacement and retrofit, roof insulation, repair and replacement, electric heating, air source and ground source heat pumps as well as renewables and energy storage solutions.
