The framework provides a number of energy efficiency solutions such as solar PV, biomass boilers and electricity storage systems through its pre-approved suppliers.

Since 2012, C&K has installed 11 megawatts of solar PV across a range of public sector clients over 20 years and will see a return of over £50 million made over the same time period.

Glasgow-based Campbell & Kennedy offers PfH Scotland members solar PV, solar thermal, LED lighting and smart meters in addition to many other energy-saving solutions. The family business was appointed to a similar framework last year with PfH for England and has since been helping members with a variety of procurement needs.

Launched in 2013, PfH Scotland is dedicated to working with landlords to enable them to continue delivering high quality services for their tenants and investing in the communities they serve. PfH Scotland has over 30 members including housing associations and local authorities.

By harnessing the collective purchasing power of housing organisations, PfH aims to generate substantial savings for its members. Members are able to reinvest in front-line services, better homes and vibrant neighbourhoods due to the savings made through the reduction of procurement costs.

Jason Lowey, Head of Energy at Campbell & Kennedy, said: “It is a great achievement for our solar division to be appointed to a place on two regional Procurement for Housing frameworks.“
