  • Descripción del IF:RE:FIT, or the retrofitting of London’s public sector buildings, is one of the pillars of the Mayor of London’s strategic approach to climate mitigation in London. It is a programme designed to help public sector and charitable organisations achieve substantial financial savings, improve the energy performance of their buildings and reduce their CO2 footprint based on the principle of Energy Performance Contracting (EPC).
  • Objetivos generales:By 2025: Reach 40% of public sector buildings, reach 11 million m², reach 400 Million £ investment Intermediary target by 2015: Retrofit up to 600 buildings, reach 1,6 million m² and savings of 45,000 tonnes Co2
  • Principales resultados alcanzados:April 2016: - 1085 adhesion contracts signed by a total amount of 20M € - 112 ongoing projects - 1560 thermal diagnoses - 3000 contacts treated for the region - 199 organisations engaged (Summer 2015) (31 of 33 London Burroughs, 25 NHS (National Health Service, UK’s healthcare system) organisations and 143 other organisations (central government, museums and education) - 440 buildings retrofitted or in the process of being retrofitted - 68,6 Mio £ achieved capital investment (Summer 2015) - 5Mio £ per annum of energy savings - 34,5K tonnes CO2 saved/year

  • Otra información: Public sector organisations interested in retrofitting their buildings based on the principle of EPC will first need to sign a Memorandum of Understanding to the RE:FIT programme. It indicates interest and commitment at senior level. This allows the PDU to develop a full retrofit project and support the organisation through the whole RE:FIT process in its role as facilitator and financial advisor. The following steps need to be considered: Identification of the buildings to be retrofitted Setting of target energy savings and the payback period Decision on funding approach Completion of project brief From this moment on an ESCO must be chosen. Under standard procurement rules a sometimes lengthy and cumbersome tender process needs to be initiated by the public sector building owner. The RE:FIT framework has simplified this procurement process by providing pre-negotiated, EU-regulation-compliant contracts that can be used with a group of 12 pre-qualified ESCOs. Here the building owner only needs to run a mini competition to select an Energy Service Company (ESCo) to carry out the works and guaranteed energy saving measures. The chosen ESCO installs the energy conservation measures, delivers the service and carries out measurement and verification during the agreed contract or payback period. Typical energy conservation measures include: Equipment: Variable Speed Drive (VSD) on pumps and fans, heat recovery, insulation to pipe work, radiator reflector panels, PC control (automatic overnight computer shutdown), voltage optimisation, Building Management System (BMS) controls. Lighting retrofit, relighting and controls Building envelope: draught proofing, cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, secondary glazing, Energy production: district heating, photovoltaic panels, solar thermal, combined Heat & Power (CHP) Funding of the projects can include the following: own funding by the building owner, borrowing directly from banks or from public financial institutions and funds such as Public Works Loan Board, Salix or London Energy Efficiency Fund, or can be financed through a third party (E.g. ESCO). The PDU, as financial advisor, can advise organisations on the types of funding available and how these are accessible. PDU was provided to the RE:FIT users at no cost as a result of the 2,4M £ ELENA funding and the almost 0,3M £ funding from Greater London Authority. Recently GLA has changed that policy and as from October 2015 full support will be given to organisations for a contribution of 2,500£ (excl VAT).
