Greater London Authority – Local Energy Framework

The GEP Environmental team is delighted to be appointed to the Greater London Authority Local Energy Framework, a national programme supporting the design and development of sustainable power generation capability and transmission networks across the UK.


Organisations throughout the UK that meet the following criteria are eligible:

  • Public sector organisations
  • Educational establishments
  • Housing associations
  • Private sector organisations (where they are obliged to use a compliant procedure, such as for the LEA programme)

Core Consultancy Services

The GEP Environmental team is available to work on Project Management (Lot 3) activities, to support the key low/zero carbon decentralised energy projects this Framework will support include, but are not limited to:

  • Low/zero carbon decentralised heating/cooling supply and networks
  • Renewable, distributed electricity generation and networks
  • Hybrid low/zero carbon energy supply and networks (i.e. heating/cooling and electricity)
  • Transport electrification (Vehicle to Grid, smart charging and linked to a wider decentralised energy network)
  • Energy storage (heat/power)
  • Demand side response
  • Project scale: building level, any size of DE networks

The services provided under Lot 3: Project Management Support aim to deliver project management expertise in the low/zero carbon decentralised energy network sector. Such support is required for organisations who wish to progress low/zero carbon, decentralised energy schemes to installation but do not have the required project management capacity or capability in-house. This project management support may need to be provided throughout all stages of a DE project, i.e. from pre-feasibility up to and including construction and commissioning or just for one stage of a project. Additional services available include:

  • Project planning and development, including use of Gantt charts and other project planning tools
  • Leading the day-to-day project management of low/zero carbon DE projects in the UK, including responsibility for meeting budgets and timescales of DE projects - for all stages from feasibility to installation and commissioning
  • Use of project management tools throughout all stages of low/zero carbon DE projects, including risk registers, budget tracking spreadsheets, scheduling tools etc.
  • Managing contractors and consultants to design, construct, commission and complete projects to the point of heat and/or power delivery to end users, ensuring adherence to all design and construction standards
  • Governance, communication and reporting progress to clients
  • Understanding and knowledge of the technical aspects of low/zero carbon DE projects
  • High level strategic, financial, commercial and legal support to aid decision making


The framework covers the entirety of the UK.
