Care England repeats energy tender for care home providers

Care England has launched a second round energy tender open to care providers with gas, electricity and LPG renewals between 2023 and 2026.

Eligible organisations should register their interest at https://www.careengland.org.uk/energy/ 

According to Care England, round one reviewed over 21,000 energy bills and delivered:

  • Energy savings of up to 36 per cent over incumbent brokers and up to 27 per cent lower than the same supplier book prices
  • Recovery of more than £3.8m of VAT and CCL
  • Free Gas Smart and Advanced Meters supporting the ability to monitor consumption and reduce energy usage and receive accurate invoicing
  • Combined energy consumption to access products not available to SMEs
  • Re-examination of credit rejections and preferential contracts offered which would normally be rejected
  • Access to platforms not accessible to all brokers to ensure the whole market’s lowest possible quote

Feedback from participants of round one can be reviewed online.

Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive of Care England, says: “With another volatile year ahead, Care England remains concerned about energy renewal costs. We would encourage care providers to secure the lowest price energy and addition offer and to take advantage of facilities not open to individual providers on their own.”
