Welcome to CEF Ireland
CEF Ireland (CEFI) is a subsidiary company of the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) and was created in 2016 to deliver Energy Performance Contract (EPC) projects on behalf of the HSE’s NHSO, as part of its Intergovernmental Partnership with the NHS. A procurement framework for EPC contractors has recently been established. To view the full Public Sector Energy Efficiency Strategy Report, please click here >>
The CEFI helps Public Sector organisations by:
Providing skilled advisors to help the Public Sector with their projects for the entire life of the project
Giving member organisations the use of CEFI’s proven Energy Services Performance contract, that transfers risk, guarantees savings and has been shown to be off balance sheet under IFRS
Giving member organisations usage of the CEFI framework procurement model, so that procurement is quick, with a significantly reduced chance of challenge
Providing a source of funding if the member organisation does not want to use its own funding, or when the bidder cannot provide better funding or grants to support the project
Supporting the member organisation’s team by overseeing the installation phase of the project and certifying practical completion
Auditing the project monthly, quarterly and annually so as to prove the delivery at all times during the contract life
Providing legal support for the process of making the standard project agreement, project specific to the member organisation’s needs
Recovering all CEFI costs from within the contractor payment, so that the member organisation faces no advisor bills, and only has to pay for any part of the project when the project is installed, proven and handed over to operations
Managing the CEFI framework leading to fewer procurement issues and contractor problems
Phase 01 Projects
Working with the NHSO, CEFI have identified the first phase of projects to fill the opening operational programme, highlights of which are as follows:
It is anticipated that the combined contract value for the initial phase will range between €20m – €25m. This is an estimated value and follows discussion and initial site visits and is subject to confirmation through detailed feasibilities.
There is further opportunity to increase the scope of works at these sites to include better waste management solutions and is under review. The Framework ITT was written to incorporate such activity.
