The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy ("BEIS") wishes to commission a project to generate a series of heat energy demand profiles corresponding to a range of different scenarios by which heat could potentially be decarbonised in the future.. The contractor will deliver a series of modelled fuel demand profiles which directly correspond to the scenarios described by BEIS; as well as a clear description of the underlying methodology and assumptions used to generate the demand profiles. Each profile will need to be detailed, i.e. showing the modelled demand for each fuel (for heat) half-hourly, to 2050. Please note: The title of this project and ITT, "Heat Demand Profiles", relates to the Prior Information Notice previously published by BEIS under the title "Energy Demand Profile Generator Tool".

Genesis Housing Association Ltd (GHA) intend to create a call-off framework for energy and water procurement and the provision of associated contract management services — (‘Energy and Water Bureau’).
Genesis Housing Association Ltd (GHA) is putting in place a call-off Framework for the procurement of energy and water and provision of the associated contract management services. The Framework is for use by, but not limited to, housing associations, local authorities, registered social landlords, arm's length management organisation and other landlords governed by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. Please refer to the following website for a full list of RSL's:
Please refer to the following website for a full list of local councils in England and Wates:
The Framework shall consist of a single lot with a minimum of one and a maximum of eight suppliers.
Each supplier shall provide the full range of services relating to the procurement of energy and water and the management of the associated contracts including, but not exclusively, the receipt and validation of bills. In particular, each Framework panel member shall provide:
Energy and water procurement services:
— Putting in place and managing contracts for the provision of energy and/or water on behalf of Framework users. Energy and water may be procured through an EU compliant supply framework or through a competition conducted by the Supplier on behalf of one or more Framework users.
Contract management services:
— The provision of energy and/or water contract management services including, but not exclusively, bill validation services for bills issued based upon remote meter reading systems. The intention is that energy and water supplies will be monitored through the use of remote meter reading technology. Where meters are not read using remote meter reading technology the Supplier shall provide a transitional service, the duration of which is not limited, to validate paper based invoices where necessary. The services, manual and digital, will involve ensuring the charges, data, and other information associated with energy and water bills are accurate and appropriate.
GHA's Framework will provide landlords with a ‘single point’ solution to their energy and water procurement service needs. However, not all Framework users will want a complete solution immediately. These users shall be able to use the Mini Competition procedure to call off just one or more element of the service, for example gas procurement, and add other elements through mini competition at a later stage.
Framework users shall be able to instruct the Supplier to go to the entire market as frequently as they wish. Alternately, they can direct the Supplier to use a particular energy and/or water supply framework such as the Genesis Energy Supply Framework.
Following a consultation, Ofgem decided to procure a third party expert with experience in allocating funds to charitable organisations.
The Service Provider will be responsible for:
Financial management of voluntary redress monies paid by energy companies, including receiving the funding from energy companies and awarding grants to charitable recipients;
Identifying potential charitable recipients, to be allocated redress funding whose projects would achieve our objectives;
Using knowledge of the British energy sector and the needs of energy consumers (including those of vulnerable consumers and those of future consumers) to make decisions on funding;
Monitoring the projects and evaluating the use of the funds and taking action to ensure that the projects are delivering real benefits to consumers; and
Providing regular reports on the performance against the objectives.
The appointed Service Provider will be responsible for the administration, financial management and allocation of redress funds to charities and third sector and will be accountable to the Authority for this.

The British Museum wishes to establish frameworks with a number of contractors who have relevant experience (including Grade 1 listed building works) in the arts and culture or similar sectors. Lot 1 is for General Building Works projects with a value between 25 000 GBP and 2 500 000 GBP. Lot 2 is for Mechanical and Electrical Works projects with a value between 25 000 GBP and 2 500 000 GBP.
The British Museum wishes to award framework agreements to suitably qualified contractors for the provision of general building works including roof repairs and replacement, refurbishment works to back of house and permanent gallery spaces. Works will be commissioned by discrete pieces of work through mini-competition or direct call off using JCT Minor or Intermediate Works contract with British Museum amendments.
The British Museum wishes to award framework agreements to suitably qualified contractors for the provision of mechanical and electrical installation works including critical plant asset replacement and renewal, electrical improvements and energy systems improvements and upgrade including redesign and technology investment. Works will be commissioned by discrete pieces of work through mini-competition or direct call off using the JCT Minor or Intermediate Works contract with British Museum amendments.
Ofgem's role as independent regulator of the gas and electricity industries naturally leads to significant interaction with the UK Government and Parliament, the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament, and the Welsh Government and Welsh Assembly, and other key energy stakeholders such as think-tanks, consumer groups and campaign organisations with an interest in energy issues, across Great Britain. A key aspect of managing this interaction is monitoring what is being said, debated and discussed in the UK Parliament, the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly and more widely in Great Britain that is relevant to, or that may impact on, our role and our work. As part of the Services Ofgem will need access to: - timely notification (by email) of important parliament and assembly announcements and announcements by other key energy stakeholders; - summaries of key debates and other political activities, e.g. Committee meetings and Committee Reports, assembly Questions and Answers and Motions; - information on the planning and progress of relevant new legislation; and - up-to-date biographical information on elected representatives. Ofgem will accept Proposals from tenderers interested in bidding for one or more of the UK Government and Parliament, and/or Wales, and/or Scotland.
The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) wishes to commission a project to consider a range of Market and Regulatory Frameworks that could support a repurposed or reconfigured GB gas network to deliver a total decarbonisation of heat. This project is an initial long-term futures piece to improve BEIS' understanding of the possible risks, uncertainties and other barriers that may arise in relation to market and regulatory frameworks if the GB gas network were to be repurposed or reconfigured to achieve 2050 decarbonisation objectives. For background information, the full specification and further information on this project please see the ITT.
Notice summary: The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) wishes to commission a project to advance our understanding of the potential role of hybrid heat pump (HHP) systems (as defined below) in long-term heat decarbonisation. Heat refers to any energy that is used, or might be used, for the purposes of heating or cooling in buildings, including cooking, providing hot water and in industrial processes. The Climate Change Act places a statutory obligation on the UK Government to make an 80% reduction in 1990 greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Achieving nearly zero carbon heating continues to be identified by government analysis as an important feature of any lowest cost pathway to 2050. Heat currently accounts for ~48% of UK energy consumption and approximately one third of our greenhouse gas emissions. On the 14th December 2016, Baroness Neville Rolfe gave a speech at the Policy Exchange's Heat Summit on heat decarbonisation. For more information see Baroness Neville Rolfe's keynote speech from the Policy Exchange event "The Heat Summit: How Can We Decarbonise Heating?" Description: Hybrid Heat Pumps project is looking to provide insight and new evidence on the extent to which Hybrid Heat Pumps could play a key role in long-term decarbonisation of heat. The objectives of the project are: • To understand the current in-situ performance of hybrid heat pumps; • To develop robust assumptions of performance and cost (capital and running) changes to 2050 in light of various scales of deployment and product innovation; • To assess potential for innovation to drive changes to hybrid heat pump technology through to 2050 and make HHPs an increasingly attractive consumer proposition (in particular when compared to standard electric heat pumps). For the purposes of this study, hybrid technologies are defined as systems combining an electric driven air or ground source heat pump with a gas boiler (including dedicated controls). Specific appliances under review should include split and integrated packaged systems as well as add-on solutions. The precise research questions that we are looking for the contractor to address are included in the ITT document attached. The contractors will be invited to propose a methodology which would best meet the overall aim and objectives above for approval by BEIS. The work is expected to include, but may not be limited to, the following methods: • Collation, analysis and comparison of relevant product and performance data; • Literature and previous studies review; • Industry consultation/expert interviews and opinion (expected to include product designers, manufacturers, installers, technical experts, trade bodies, researchers and academia); • Analysis, synthesis and modelling; • Documentation.
