Your invitation to the LEP/LPP Water Contract & Energy Category Development Conference

London Energy Project (LEP) in association with NHS London Procurement Partnership invites LPP members with operational responsibility for energy and water procurement and management to a free one-day event.

Date: 5 June 2018 (9.30am - 4.30pm)
Location: University College London Hospital, Education Centre, 250 Euston Road, London, NW1 2PG

The Water Contract & Energy Category Development Conference will focus on the exciting opportunities that could be available to Trusts and Local Authorities through a pan-LEP category management approach for energy and water:

* high quality services, at the same time ensuring value for money and improved commercial outcomes;
* improved performance, achieving innovation and ongoing efficiencies, through joint working and sharing best practice;
* a more closely integrated public sector estate that delivers social, economic and environmental benefits for our local communities; and
* the new pan-LEP water contract.

What does the conference cover?

LEP and LPP are working together to establish London-wide contracts for Water and then for Electricity & Gas. In addition to these, LPP members will be able to access all existing LEP training events, receive the LEP annual energy price benchmarking reports as well as carbon reduction services and other expert guidance and support services.

Conference sessions on the day will give you:

  1. A practical introduction to why Health and Local Authorities are working together on energy and water; how it should deliver greater value to Trust and authority customers and our communities. 

  2. Opportunities to deliver your Trust’s business priorities for quality and safety, sustainable resource management, locality-based working and enhanced data to enable intelligence-led investment via the LEP Work Programme…basically how best to get involved and start benefitting. 

  3. An overview of the long-standing work of the LEP and its vision for innovation and service transformation in utilities; and how Local Authority members have participated in and benefitted, taking control back and getting what they need and want from the supply community, i.e. working together to get more for less not more of the same.

  4. A first look at the 2018 pan-LEP water contract, including the opportunity to meet the new Water Retailer. Find out how to join the contract and how it will operate. Discuss and review how on-boarding will work, bill formats, payment processes, AMR, additional readings, what ancillary services are available, and more…

A full agenda will be available in advance of the day.

Who should attend?

This is an ideal opportunity to engage colleagues from other teams (estates, sustainability, energy, procurement etc) to decide how best to access the category expert support, resources and initiatives now available to you through LEP membership.
