Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has named EDF as one of only two suppliers on the new Supply of Energy 2 agreement
We’ve been working with Crown Commercial Service (CCS) - a government agency who supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services - for over 20 years and built a strong relationship over this time. We’re proud to have renewed this supplier agreement through what will become the UK’s largest electricity supply contract.
Both EDF and CCS are committed to tackling climate change and helping customers reduce energy consumption. The renewal of our supplier agreement will enable us to continually evolve and support our public sector customers on their journey to Net Zero.
John Malone, Deputy Director for Energy at Crown Commercial Service, explains:
What does this energy agreement mean?
The four-year supplier agreement will see EDF continue to offer stability and reliability to the public sector during a period of market change, whilst delivering significant value through innovative trading and energy solutions offerings. This will encompass hundreds of key public services and facilities including Central Government, NHS hospitals and schools, across around 60,000 meter points.
Alongside Net Zero, Social Value is at the forefront of this supplier agreement, with EDF and CCS making a commitment to support, develop and invest in local communities across the UK. A positive social and environmental impact is a fundamental part of this agreement.
How will it help Britain achieve Net Zero?
EDF is Britain's biggest generator of zero carbon electricity. We are working to achieve Net Zero in a sustainable way - environmentally, economically, and socially - by continuously investing in and enabling access to zero carbon energy and technology.
Matt Nunn, Director of EDF Business Solutions, stated:
This new framework will support CCS’s customers in achieving their energy, cost and Net Zero goals through the provision of expert guidance, access to Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPAs) and metering solutions, alongside other decarbonisation solutions.
