Description Adam Garbutt, CCS Category Lead for Utilities & Fuels (Strategic) at Crown Commercial Service – HELGA explains the role of the public sector when it comes to tackling the so-called ‘energy trilemma’ in terms of procurement frameworks The UK is not alone among nations facing the so-called ‘energy trilemma’, a puzzle which requires the balancing of three challenges: affordability, sustainability and security. The public sector has a significant role to play in helping solve this problem and indeed has set a voluntary target to reduce its own carbon emissions to 30% of 2009/10 levels by 2020/21. Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has been tasked with supporting this aim through a number of energy agreements – sets of terms and conditions which suppliers agree to abide by when dealing with public bodies. One of our newest and most noteworthy agreements is the HELGA (Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets) Dynamic Purchasing System (CDPS), which will help public bodies and the wider public sector find the right suppliers for solar panels, wind turbines, heat networks, battery storage and more. By self-generating, the public sector will benefit from energy security, lower costs and demand reduction. All these measures will increase the uptake of renewable energy and reduce the environmental impact of the public sector. HELGA supports public sector customers and provides the specialist suppliers – whatever their size – access to those customers. For customers, HELGA is a flexible and compliant way to access a full range of market participants for any energy generation or efficiency projects they wish to run. The benefits include an OJEU-compliant competition process, and pre-existing terms and conditions to reduce paperwork. It will allow filtering by project size and location, assisting SMEs to participate in the call for competition and allow the public sector to fulfil its ambition to increase its spend through the SME market. For suppliers, once they are registered they will be included in any relevant call for competition run through the HELGA system, increasing their visibility of new projects and potentially opening up whole new markets. The market for energy demand reduction is growing all the time, and we see up to £800 million of public spend being delivered through this agreement over its four-year lifespan. CCS has engaged closely with the energy demand management market to better understand its fast-moving and evolving nature. We’ve looked over the horizon too, putting in place an agreement which fulfils the needs of the sector today while being flexible to ensure it captures future requirements. we see up to £800 million of public spend being delivered through this agreement It was, for this reason, CCS opted for a DPS, which allows both suppliers and services to evolve as requirements change. It puts HELGA and CCS at the forefront of energy demand management tools. It also allows suppliers to register at any time during the lifetime of the agreement. We have had over 70 suppliers register to be on the agreement since it launched in November 2018, with many of those now approved and ready to serve customers – this figure will grow over the next four years. CCS is uniquely positioned to offer services to both Central Government and the wider public sector, as well as offering solutions for the full range of technologies and services. Although innovative and digital HELGA retains the human element that CCS customers like. It allows for specialist design and advisory services to be bought if customers need help to create these specs, and the HELGA team is always on hand to help customers. But HELGA is just one of the ways we are looking to help our customers meet their energy needs as they try to address CO2 and energy security issues. We have a long-term strategy to help the public sector reduce the cost and impact of all aspects of its energy consumption, by providing a range of services to cover the whole end-to-end process of utility management. In addition to our frameworks for electricity, gas, water and fuels, which allow customers to buy utilities at a low cost, we have recently introduced frameworks to help manage and reduce their energy consumption. These include Utilities Management Software, Metering and Ancillary Services (RM3800) and Demand Side Response (RM3792) frameworks. We are currently developing a Smart Energy Cities o?ering to manage new ‘Smart’ technologies and their impact on the way our customers use energy. We believe this will provide our customers with the tools they need to help them manage the uncertainty of long-term energy prices and ever-changing technologies. The challenge facing CCS is that it needs to be influential – the place people turn to for public procurement excellence. That’s not just about developing innovative market-sensitive frameworks, but also about being in tune with policy initiatives that want to improve the lives of citizens throughout the country. HELGA is a great example of that kind of thinking, and this kind of leadership is how CCS can really make a difference.

Description The EBRD has stepped up its efforts to combat gender inequality in Croatia with its support for a programme that rewards socially responsible companies breaking down barriers to female entrepreneurship. Up to five Croatian ventures stand to receive financial support and access to expertise and networking opportunities under the “Programme for the Economic Empowerment of Women”, known as DARING. DARING was set up by the SOLIDARNA Foundation for Human Rights and Solidarity together with IKEA and Mastercard and the Croatian Business Council for Sustainable Development to help women entrepreneurs with start-up ventures to successfully grow their businesses. The EBRD, which promotes gender equality throughout its regions, including via its successful Women in Business programmes, joined an event organised by SOLIDARNA today to pick the first participants in the programme. The winners can receive up to HRK 75,000 each in financing as well as practical support. The initial programme is worth a total of HRK 250,000 (€33,000) The programme seeks especially to reward projects that contribute to economic empowerment in underdeveloped environments and women in marginalised groups. The EBRD was invited to join in recognition of the Bank’s support for gender equality and women empowerment and will offer advisory services. The five candidates who reached the shortlist for the programme were: Aurora Colapis – several women in the rural area of Karlovac joined forces to build a traditional boat which was used to transport cereals in the past and now they offer tourist tours. Karlovac in central Croatia is located on four rivers and in recent years has attracted a growing number of visitors. K-Zona developed and produced the card-game “Fierce Women” and the initial successful placement on the market showed there is potential for further market development and increase of sales. Silvan Cosmetics produces natural, handcrafted soaps in special packaging inspired by the Croatian tradition, with seeds of wild flowers in it. The inspiration came from local tradition and natural resources. Zagrebacki plesni ansambl (Zagreb Dance Ensemble) has a theatre facility in the Istrian village of Svetivincenat that hosts a dance and non-verbal theatre festival in the summer. The ensemble plans to upgrade its facility for commercial activities and further develop the festival programme, strengthening its international character. Dandy is a social initiative born in Otocac in the Lika region, a rural and underdeveloped area with the smallest population and a largely untouched natural environment. The project is assembling the local population around a book club that invites interesting guests and motivate people to join forces to support and promote local tradition and products. Croatian women represent nearly half the country’s workforce, but only just over a fifth of companies are owned by women. The EBRD has responded to this challenge with its Women in Business programme in Croatia. Backed by the TaiwanBusiness-EBRD Technical Cooperation Fund, the Croatian initiative has provided 136 women-led companies with advisory services, facilitates participation of 270 female entrepreneurs in training programmes. It works with two partner banks who provide dedicated credit lines to women-led businesses. Outside Croatia, the EBRD’s overall Women in Business programme has provided close to €500 million in credit lines to more than 30 banks in 18 countries reaching over 35,000 women.

Description A new programme of transport safety measures has been drawn up for Europe, with funding having been secured. Called the Safer Transport Platform, this programme is being managed jointly by the European Investment Bank and European Commission. The plans call for a series of investments in transport safety, with a special focus on roads New financing measures form part of the Safer Transport Platform, a joint EC and EIB initiative. This will address investment needs in transport safety in Europe. At the TEN-T and CEF Conference in Bucharest, the EU Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc together with Vice-President of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Vazil Hudák launched the “Safer Transport Platform”. The aim is to promote safety as a key element for transport investment and to provide easy access to technical and financial advice, in particular for road safety. In order to strengthen and focus existing investment activities in road safety, the EIB and EC have established the "Safer Transport Platform - Road Safety Advisory” - available through a dedicated website. Safety considerations are paramount for all modes of transport, but particularly urgent in road transport. Even though the EU has made great progress in reducing the number of road fatalities over the last decades, more than 25,000 people are killed and 135,000 seriously injured on European roads every year. Well targeted investment is a key factor in addressing this unacceptable situation, and relatively small amounts can make a big difference. This is why the EIB and the European Commission are joining forces to further support and focus their efforts for safer roads. Vazil Hudák, EIB Vice-President, added: “The EIB is increasing its attention to safety in all transport modes. However, given the scale of fatalities in the road sector, our efforts are concentrating on road safety. Substantial work is required to meet the EU target of zero fatalities in 2050. We stand ready to assist promotors in developing and implementing safer transport infrastructure.” Violeta Bulc, EU Commissioner for Transport said: “To save lives on European roads, we need targeted investment in the right measures. The ´Safer Transport Platform` will help ensure that projects receive the necessary technical and financial advice. I encourage interested parties from the public and private sector organisations to make use of the platform as of today! I am very pleased that our good cooperation with the EIB has had another concrete result to the benefit of European citizens.” The “Safer Transport Platform – Road Safety Advisory” provides a single access point to the full range of existing EIB and EC advisory services and financial products. It guides potential applicants to the appropriate funding and financing instruments. The service is supported by the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH) and includes a web site with a contact form, a needs assessment exercise and awareness raising activities. The advisory support addresses the public and the private sector. Examples of eligible projects include road rehabilitation programmes, traffic calming measures, facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, IT solutions for safer traffic management and – on an exploratory basis – measures to improve the safety of vehicle fleets and other road safety related projects.

Description Construction of Batoka Gorge Hydroelectric Power Station in Zambia is set to begin by end of this year after a selection of winning contractor in six months’ time. Energy and Power Development permanent secretary Engineer Gloria Magombo announced the reports and said that once negotiations with the contractor are completed, construction will begin in earnest. “We have been meeting as the Zambezi River Authority, looking at the progress on the implementation of the project and as we all know, any project has developmental stages. Construction will only begin after the selection of the project developer by September this year,” said Engineer Magombo. Contractor’s responsibility Three shortlisted contractors; Salini Impregilo of Italy; a joint venture of China Three Gorges Corporation, China International and Water Electric Corporation and China Gezhouba Group Company Limited, and another consortium of US-based General Electric (GE) and Power Construction Corporation of China were requested for proposals which requires companies to place bids for a project’s completion. Nine contractors had initially expressed interest in the project. The shortlisted contractors will be responsible for the relevant preparatory study reports which include the Engineering Feasibility Study; the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA); and Legal and Financial Transaction Advisory Services (LFTA) “The first stage is project preparation, where you do the feasibility studies, engineering studies and the environmental impact assessments, and that is the stage that we have been working on,” said Magombo.

Description BRANFORD — The Board of Education this week unanimously approved waiving bids to award what now is a $3 million bus contract to First Student Inc. First Student has held the contract for five years since getting it through a competitive bidding process. The school board’s approval of the bid waiver Wednesday night followed by a month the approval of the Board of Selectmen. Schools Chief Operating Officer Donald Neel said the ultimate cost of the contract will depend on the number of buses required. But the price paid will rise by 2.5 percent per year for the first two years and 3 percent per year for the subsequent three years. First Student, based in Cincinnati — but with local offices — also will make available a smartphone app that will allow parents to use GPS to see where a child’s bus is at any given time, Neel said. The terms of the new contract will allow the maximum age of the buses used on Branford routes to rise from 8 years old to 10, Neel said. The contract includes all sports and after-school activities and “our adviser says it meets industry standards and the costs are in line with ... other contracts” in comparable districts, Neel told selectmen last month. A consultant the school system works with, Transportation Advisory Services of Walworth, N.Y., advised school officials “right out of the box” that if they were satisfied with the current service, they’d be better off negotiating rather than going out to bid, Neel has said. Branford’s contact at T.A.S. told officials that if they negotiated, they could probably get a single-digit increase, whereas if the contract went out to bid, “it could come back as a double-digit increase,” he said. “We’ve been very, very pleased with the service that First Student has given us,” Neel said after the selectmen’s meeting. “It’s been exemplary.” First Student currently operates 22 full-size buses and 10 smaller buses on its Branford routes — a number the company voluntarily reduced this year as a result of using routing software to make sure the routes are efficient, Neel told selectmen.

Description Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has received 5 bids for an advisory services tender for a 120 MIGD (million imperial gallons per day) water desalination project in Hassyan. This is the first project to use the Independent Water Producer (IWP) model in Dubai. The project will use Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) and supports DEWA’s efforts to meet growing demand for water in the Emirate. DEWA received 5 bids from Cranmore Partners from the UAE and UK; Synergy from India and the USA; Deloitte from the USA; PricewaterhouseCoopers from the UK, and Ernst & Young from the UK. “At DEWA, we work to achieve the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide a robust infrastructure based on the highest international standards to meet the growing demand for energy and water in Dubai. This equates with the population increase in Dubai and its comprehensive development. The IWP model builds on the great success we achieved using the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park’s projects. We expect the project to start production in 2023,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA. Al Tayer said that DEWA intends to desalinate all its water powered by a mix of clean energy that uses environmentally sustainable energy by 2030. This means Dubai will exceed global targets for using clean energy to desalinate water. DEWA’s studies proved the technical and economic feasibility of replacing Multi-Stage Flash (MSF) desalination technology with solar-powered reverse osmosis using cheap clean energy.
