To accelerate energy efficiency within public sector buildings the Scottish Government has put in place the Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency Framework (NDEEF). Salix supports the Scottish public sector in using this contractor framework and incorporates this into the interest-free funding available.
Salix was pleased to attend the annual event for the Scottish Government's NDEEF on 26th June at Dundee City Council’s Caird Hall. During the event the Scottish Government introduced the Energy Efficient Scotland Route Map and highlighted the role of the NDEEF in supporting the public and third sectors to meet carbon reduction obligations, in the context of the Scottish Energy Strategy.
Salix was delighted to present case study examples of North Lanarkshire and North Ayrshire who have recently completed NDEE projects, match funded through their Salix Recycling Fund and a SEELS loan respectively. Salix also supported the first NDEE project with 8 primary schools at East Renfrewshire Council, and are continuing to work in partnership with several other Councils to support their NDEE projects, from project identification through to delivery and savings verification.
Jennifer Roberts, Salix’s Scotland Programme Coordinator said “The NDEE framework is a great way for the public sector to take a site wide approach to energy efficiency projects. The framework helps to identify a range of projects as well as providing value for money in support of cutting costs and tackling climate change”
Highlights of the conference also included a case study example from Dundee City Council on their first NDEE project and a tour around Dundee City’s McManus Galleries to see new LED lighting, boiler and value insulation solutions in a Victorian building.
