Scottish Procurement extends Supply of Electricity contract with EDF

By Talk Power Team | Posted December 06, 2023

EDF and Scottish Procurement are committed to tackling climate change and helping Scotland’s public sector organisations reduce their energy consumption. After a successful relationship spanning over a decade, the renewal of our supplier agreement will enable us to support 98% of Scotland’s public sector on their journey to Net Zero.

We’re proud to have renewed this supplier agreement through what will become Scotland’s largest electricity supply contract.

The framework is for an initial period of two years, with options to extend for a further three annual extensions.

What does this energy agreement mean?

The new agreement will see Scottish Procurement continue to offer stability and reliability to the public sector, whist delivering significant value through innovative trading and energy solutions offerings. This will encompass hundreds of key public services and facilities including Government contracts, NHS hospitals, councils and schools.

Alongside the Net Zero goal, Social Value is at the forefront of this supplier agreement, with EDF and Scottish Procurement making a long-term commitment to support, develop and invest in local communities across Scotland, with a focus on core health, wellbeing and energy priorities.

How will it help Scotland 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 enabling access to zero carbon energy and technology.

I am absolutely delighted with the award of this contract. Scotland is very important to EDF as we have a significant presence in Scotland, and the renewal of this contract is absolutely key, and we look forward to working with Scottish procurement to help Scotland’s Public Sector achieve Net Zero. – Sharon Sage, Head of Public Sector, EDF

Net Zero and decarbonisation was a very big factor of this renewal. This new framework will support Scottish Procurement’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.
