Demand Management & Renewables Framework (HELGA 2)


Provides a route to market for a range of energy products and services to support the public sector carbon net zero strategy.


This agreement is 1 of 2 that will replace the existing RM3824 Heat Network and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) agreement.

We are still finalising the scope of products and services but we plan for this agreement to provide the following:

  • solar photovoltaic
  • heat pumps
  • heat network support
  • building retrofit and energy efficiency
  • Carbon Net Zero (CNZ) consultancy 

Further engagement will decide:

  • the full scope of products and services available
  • lot structure
  • options for routes to market


  • access to a quick route to market to support carbon reduction targets
  • access suppliers who can support in the design, build operating and maintenance of demand management and renewable energy projects
  • a route to market for products and services recommended by the Government Net Zero strategy and Net Zero Estates Playbook
  • option of direct award procurement to support the tight timescales of accessing government decarbonisation funding

Customer engagement

We will publish a customer survey in the coming weeks that will help to shape this agreement. The results will help us to understand which projects are important to your net zero strategy and what support we can give.

We will also be hosting customer webinars and / or engagement days to further work with you.

You will be able to find information about future customer engagement sessions on this page.

Supplier engagement

The team has hosted a number of Supplier Workshops this year to inform the market of the new framework structure and timelines.

If you would like to see the slides from the session, email the team.

The invitation to tender for this agreement will be issued in November 2022.

Note: if you have attended our previous sessions, we will automatically invite you to any future sessions.
