NDEE Frameworks: Bringing buildings on our Net Zero journey

Now that #ScotClimateWeek has passed, the real countdown to COP26 in November begins! With climate change at the forefront of our minds, our next video case study features frameworks which help public and third sector organisations support Scotland’s Net Zero ambitions by improving the energy efficiency of their buildings – and make real cash savings. These frameworks are known as NDEE which stands for ‘Non Domestic Energy Efficiency’.
A non-domestic energy efficiency project retrofits public sector and third sector buildings with energy efficiency assets. These may include, but not limited to, prefabricated energy centres; combined heat and power units; energy efficient boilers; communal heating; voltage management units; controls outstations; luminaires, lighting controllers and other lighting assets
There are approximately 200,000 non-domestic buildings in Scotland, and these vary widely in terms of construction, size, and in particular their use, whether it’s as shops, offices, factories, warehouses, or hotels.
Watch the video below to find out more about how these frameworks have helped organisations such as Edinburgh College and Dundee City Council save money and improve the carbon footprint and environmental comfort of buildings within their estate. Contract Manager Billy Lawson and Project Support Unit Mott MacDonald also discuss how the frameworks work and the many additional benefits that can be realised in addition to carbon reduction and cash savings.
