Melbourne Renewable Energy Project - supplier tender briefing session

Tuesday 15 December, 2015
10am
City of Melbourne Town Hall Supper Room, Level 3 (enter via Swanston St entrance)

The City of Melbourne has partnered with other local governments, cultural and educational institutions, and private-sector corporations to investigate purchasing renewable energy together through a group purchasing model.

Our group wants to purchase approximately 120 GWh worth of energy from new utility scale renewable energy facilities. This amount of renewable energy will save 151,200 tonnes of CO2 each year – which is the equivalent of planting more than 175,000 new trees.

Through a group tender process, we will seek proposals from the market to deliver renewable energy at an attractive price. The proposals will also need to demonstrate a range of community and economic benefits.

We are working with Procurement Australia towards releasing a tender in early 2015.

Energy industry suppliers who want to know more about the scope, objectives and requirements of the prospective tender, are encouraged to attend our supplier tender briefing session:

This briefing is open to all energy industry suppliers capable of responding to this tender directly or via a consortia arrangement.

Please pre-register your attendance by 11 December, 2015 via email to events@paltd.com.au.

Enquiries regarding this briefing should be directed to Brendan Hoare at Procurement Australia on (03) 9810 8606 or email bhoare@paltd.com.au.
