The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, today revealed the shortlist for a project to improve energy efficiency in London Authority Group buildings.Business Services, Atkins, Dalkia, EDF Energy, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Siemens and TAC/Schneider all made the list.
The project is part of the initial stages of work to deliver on the deal developed by the Clinton Climate Initiative for the C40 cities at the New York Large Cities Climate Summit in May 2007, to cut carbon emissions by making existing buildings more energy efficient.
The final selected company or companies will be chosen and announced in January 2008.
The first set of buildings to be retrofitted include up to 100 buildings from the Greater London Authority Group including the buildings of the Metropolitan Police Service, Transport for London and the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority.
The companies shortlisted to bid for the contract need to provide a range of services, including surveying and auditing the buildings to assess which are the most appropriate energy efficiency measures, such as energy efficient lighting, insulation and combined cooling heat and power.
Alongside the energy audit, the companies need to plan, project manage and implement the energy efficiency measures that the building requires, and they will need to guarantee to meet an energy savings target over an agreed period.
