Energy Managers Forum 2013/2014
Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP) have taken the initiative to reintroduce the Energy Managers Forum for the NHS in London and the surrounding region to tackle the challenges of energy demand management and cost control.
Each forum is hosted by different CCS suppliers in rotation.
LPP’s Senior Category Manager in the Estates and Facilities team, Ed James, commented that “Energy is a notoriously difficult category to influence, with prices currently heading in one direction. The purpose of the forum is to encourage the sharing of best practice and review the mutual support we can provide to reduce energy consumption as individual organisations and collaboratively.”
Claire Gibney, CCS’s Commercial Delivery Manager, added that “Managers and their staff involved in energy management, sustainability and procurement get regular communications from CCS, but also benefit greatly from meeting CCS and suppliers face to face. The Energy Managers Forum gives the NHS community the opportunity to do that, and to keep abreast of energy market developments. It also provides support and practical advice on the best ways of using the CCS framework to meet the challenges of energy demand management and cost control.”
