City Leap Prospectus - Soft Market Testing Excercise

Bristol City Council is seeking, via the City Leap Prospectus, to undertake soft market testing with potential partners for the energy element of the City Leap Programme prior to undertaking appropriate procurement exercises later in 2018/19 (subject to internal Council approvals). Set out in the City Leap prospectus is the programme of work that Bristol City Council currently envisages will be its focus over the next ten years. This programme of work reflects the strategically co-ordinated range of projects that Bristol City Council is currently pursuing to meet its 2050 carbon neutrality target. Recognising that there is substantial innovation in the energy sector, particularly in relation to the future smart energy system, the City Leap Programme could easily be expanded to include other activities, reflecting innovative business models or ideas proposed by potential partners, and the council would welcome proposals that extend beyond the programme of work as set out in the Prospectus. Expressions of interest (EOIs) regarding potential partnership opportunities with the council must be submitted by 23:50 BST on Friday 31st August 2018. Please note that the council will start to action the EOIs as we receive them but will not enter into any discussions with organisations that submit EOIs after the deadline. Please complete the secure webform on the Energy Service's website: to submit your Expression of Interest For the avoidance of doubt, the purpose of the City Leap Prospectus is to conduct a soft market testing exercise to determine whether the council wishes to enter into one or more partnerships for the energy element of Bristol City Council's proposed City Leap Programme. Any subsequent partnerships entered into by Bristol City Council with third parties will be subject to appropriate procurement, as required
