Description of the goods or services required

The Energy Saving Trust is offering bidders to quote for carrying out market research in remote rural and island areas of Scotland to identify any gaps in the sustainable energy supply chains, to assess what the barriers are for businesses in operating in these areas and to make recommendations for overcoming these barriers.

The UK and Scottish Governments are keen that all householders, businesses and other organisations can benefit from the financial support schemes available regardless of where they live. Experience has shown that some householders in remote rural and island areas of Scotland are experiencing difficulties finding certified suppliers. Based on householder feedback, the reasons include one or more of the following:

-the accuracy with some of the listings on the GD ORB and/or MCS web sites in relation to areas covered

-a limited number of certified suppliers in their areas and their respective capacities

-the extra costs associated with bringing in certified supplier from another area

Fundamentally, if a householder, business or organisation finds it difficult or is unable to contact a certified supplier then the opportunity for improving their home or premises, saving carbon and saving money may be lost.
