What our clients say… “The free support provided by the REFIT Programme Delivery Unit, combined with the benefits of an existing Supply Framework, have meant that the London Borough of Enfield has been able to accelerate its Invest to Save activities. ” Jeff Laidler, Head of Sustainability, London Borough of Enfield “Without the structure and support of RE:FIT, it would have been much more challenging for Ealing to gain the necessary support and approvals to move our programme forward. Also the guaranteed energy savings allowed us to quickly secure confidence with internal stakeholders.” Jo Mortensen, Sustainability Programme Manager, Ealing Council "What attracted Kew to the RE:FIT programme was the pre-approved list of companies who have experience in energy conservation and implementing low carbon solutions, whilst ensuring value for money, and also the level of guaranteed savings offered."
