Three shortlisted for £200m North-east Green Deal scheme

Three teams have made the shortlist to be the delivery partner for the Warm Up North scheme to provide green retrofit for five local authorities in the North-east, CN has learned.

British Gas is up against a Keepmoat/EDF/Gentoo team and an RWE nPower/Wates partnership.

The scheme will include energy efficiency work for domestic and public properties for five local authorities in the North-east and a range of public sector partners.

Carillion Energy Services, which won the £600 million Birmingham Green Deal contract, is understood to be out of the running.

Last month Carillion told CN it was searching for local supply chain partners to help deliver the scheme.

Mears, Kier and SSE also bid for the North-eastern work but did not make the shortlist.

Work is expected to begin flowing through the agreement from autumn 2013.

A total of 11 councils in West Yorkshire are also eyeing up a possible £80m Green Deal contractor partnership.

The councils covered by the agreement are:

  • Darlington Borough Council
  • Durham County Council
  • Newcastle City Council
  • Northumberland County Council
  • South Tyneside Council
