The United Kingdom seeks proposals from energy technical specialists, including specialists in hydropower and marine energy, to participate in a framework agreement to help carry out energy and climate change policies. Proposals are due December 22.
The U.K.'s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) oversees low-carbon policies and initiatives to enable the transition to a green economy, buoying the hydropower and marine energy industries, among others. DECC awarded more than US$833,800 in February to marine energy developer Minesto, IT Power and National Physical Laboratory, as part of the Energy Entrepreneurs Fund.
DECC now seeks proposals for engineering-related scientific and technical services for 48-month framework agreements covering 22 lots of services for varied energy fields including hydroelectric and marine technologies as well as nuclear, wind, solar, bioenergy, fuel cells, petrochemicals, geothermal, innovative fossil fuels, energy storage, carbon capture and others.
Lot 8 for hydroelectric and marine technologies, including wave and tidal power, seeks services to ensure DECC is fully informed of new technological developments and practices in the energy and climate change arena. Up to six highest-scoring suppliers are to be appointed to the lot's framework agreement, valued between 100 and 450,000 pounds (US$157 and US$705,277).
