Arts Council England service to lower arts organisations' energy costs

The Arts Council England has introduced a service to give arts and culture organisations access to lower energy costs via ACE's energy buyer, Government Procurement Services.

Arts and culture organisations can reduce their energy costs by joining the Government Procurement Service's (GPS) energy procurement frameworks which provide lower energy in comparison to market prices.

In purchasing energy through GPS, organisations will also have access to a number of services relating to the reduction of energy consumption such as automated meter reading, IT power management and voltage optimisation.

GPS energy frameworks are open to all not-for-profit arts organisations, museums, galleries and libraries, whether funded by Art Council England or not.
