Commissioning and handover

Our guidance supports you to get the best out of your public sector decarbonisation projects with high quality commissioning and handovers.

Here you will find access to information on handing over a completed project, staff training and setup, and commissioning of equipment to specific building operations. Ensuring all handover documentation is in place.

Who should use this guidance?

This Public Sector Decarbonisation Guidance was commissioned by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), formerly Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Cabinet Office to help public sector bodies and their decarbonisation partners understand the best route to Net Zero. We aim to help deliver decarbonisation projects at scale, as well as support grant funding applications, to enable rapid progress on reducing carbon emissions.

This guidance takes learnings from the Modern Energy Partners (MEP) programme and expertise from across Energy Systems Catapult to provide guidance on heat decarbonisation and energy management.
