We will now offer our measurement, monitoring and data services alongside our design, installation and management of low-carbon assets, ensuring a true end-to-end energy solution for the public sector under one agreement.

As of 9th October 2020, SMS is to offer specialised metering and data services to the UK public sector through the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) DPS agreement.

Public sector organisations will now be able to procure these services – previously listed on CCS’s RM3800 Utilities Management Software, Metering and Ancillary Services agreement (which as of today ceases to continue) – via HELGA, following the integration of these two agreements. HELGA allows customers to procure following a competitive tender for their desired service.

Energy Services through HELGA

Using SMS as a supplier, clients can access a full range of measurement, monitoring and renewable generation services via HELGA which are geared towards helping the UK public sector reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. These include:

  • Installation and maintenance of meters
  • MOP and Data Collection and Data Aggregation (DCDA) services
  • Provision of our energy management software, SmartVision
  • Technical and delivery services relating to the advice, design, installation, management and maintenance of any demand management or generation type (i.e. battery storage, renewable energy and heat solutions)
  • Provision of Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)

Our one-stop-shop solution
Any one or combination of the above services can be procured through SMS via HELGA. Alternatively, we can utilise all our energy expertise under one offering, delivering to the public sector an end-to-end energy service provision.

From data collection, monitoring and energy auditing, all the way through to the complex installation and ongoing management of renewable generation and heat assets.

Net-zero funding and delivery
In addition to our end-to-end delivery, outside of CCS frameworks SMS is also helping the public sector realise low-carbon goals through our Asset Funding and Net-Zero Strategy services. Our ability to fund green energy assets, including on-site generation, storage, EV charging, heat and efficiency solutions, makes us a partner of choice to deliver net-zero objectives.

Using the special Net-Zero Framework we have developed for large organisations through our expert energy consultancy, we can help you select the most suitable path to zero emissions for your business’ unique requirements. We support you throughout the planning, implementation and review of a long-term energy and carbon reduction programme, making it easier and more cost- effective to realise your net-zero goals.
