Mackay Regional Council (Council) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for Renewable Energy Generation options.
This EOI is for renewable energy generation projects only. General energy efficiency initiatives (e.g. replacement of traditional lighting with LED lighting) will not be considered under this REOI. Council intends to issue separate REOIs for such initiative sometime in the future.
Council is requesting EOIs for two categories of renewable energy projects as follows:
a) Small-scale renewable energy generation, and
b) Large-scale renewable energy generation.
Small-scale Renewable Energy Generation:
Generation facilities between 1kW and 200kW. These generators are able to elect to receive Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC). STCs are for residential and smaller commercial systems. These are created at point of commissioning calculated over an assumed 15 years after commissioning of the system.
Large-scale Renewable Energy Generation:
Projects with an installed capacity of 100kW or more or generate more than 250MWh per annum that are capable of generating Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGC). LGCs are created on an ongoing basis based on an amount of generation equal to the actual generation produced by the generator. The LGC scheme finishes at the end of 2030.
CS Energy seeks proposals in relation to the Callide C Pulveriser Rejects Conveying Upgrade. Further details are provided in the specification documents.
ATM for the provision of a detailed report that could be used to inform a future funding proposal for redevelopment work on the EME website. The final report will be required to propose web functionality and design that would enable EME to continue to be a relevant and useful service to energy consumers, while meeting its regulatory objectives
Tenders are invited for the replacement of existing office lighting and controls within Council’s Caloundra Administration Building.
To improve the energy efficiency of the lighting installation within the Caloundra Administration Building, approximately 900 luminaires and 100 passive infrared (PIR) detectors are required to be installed across all three (3) floors of the building.
Request for Proposal (RFP) for an Event Collaboration Solution - 510628
There are numerous organisations, including Council, that carry out planned works within Brisbane, e.g. energy providers, telecommunication providers and utility providers. Each of these organisations may own/lease and/or operate assets that are located within areas of Brisbane such as the road corridor and park areas. Not only do these organisations carry out asset maintenance activities, but they also undertake large capital works including major upgrades and installation of new infrastructure. A large number of the assets are underground, making replacement or installation an expensive exercise.
There are numerous stakeholders which may be impacted by these works and other events, such as normal road traffic consumers (including emergency services and police), transport organisations (e.g. bus, taxi and road haulage contractors), Queensland Rail (where rail crossings and rail bridges occur), Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (access to their road infrastructure), special events (such as Riverfire) and advertising signage contractors to name a few.
There is an opportunity to improve forward planning, coordination, scheduling and delivery of work events between all stakeholders to:
Work events need to be constantly monitored and optimised to take advantage of schedule changes, road and park closures, minimise road corridor excavation and ensure works are carried in the correct order e.g. installation of new underground assets before Brisbane City Council resurfaces the road.
As the largest key stakeholder in the Brisbane area, Council will take the lead to source a vendor to build an internet-based solution that provides Council and external agencies the ability to view each agencies’ planned events in a single system. The solution objective is to facilitate collaboration between agencies to avoid conflicts, identify opportunities for cost reduction, and minimise impacts on Brisbane residents thus improving the reputation of all agencies. Potential collaborative partners, who are key stakeholders in the Brisbane area;
Brisbane City Council’s strategic direction is to transition from being a technology provider to a cloud service consumer. Council’s preference is Software as a Service (SaaS) for the provision of the solution. The successful Tenderer will be required to negotiate specific subscription and support agreements directly with individual agencies wishing to use the solution; however a participating agency clause will be included in Council’s contract.
Council is seeking to use this RFP to establish a Preferred Supplier Arrangement. Under this arrangement, Council will enter into a Contract with the successful Tenderer. The Contract will be for an Initial Term of three years but not exceeding a Maximum Term of five years.
The details as to how such Contracts are to operate and any such extension is to be granted are contained in the attached Contract in Part 4 of this RFP.
