GIB and DLL commit £6.9m to Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust’s energy efficiency programme. The project will cut the Trust’s annual energy costs by around £2m and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Trust will benefit from a range of energy efficiency technologies including a new 2.5 MW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.
UK Green Investment Bank plc and DLL have committed £6.9m to a programme of energy saving measures at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. GIB has committed £3.4m to the scheme as part of the £50m NHS energy efficiency funding alliance that it established with DLL in 2014.
The project was procured through the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) framework, with Vital Energi appointed as the Trust partner. The design, construction, installation and on-going asset management of the scheme will be carried out by Vital Energi under a 15-year performance contract.
The energy centre at Salford Royal will undergo a full refresh, including the installation of a new 2.5 MW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engine. A series of energy reduction measures will also be installed such as LED lighting and the optimisation of the building management system.
The project, which is due for completion by the end of 2016, is expected to cut the cost of energy to the Trust by £1.9m per year and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Mike Dance, Estates Manager, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, said “The Carbon and Energy Fund has given the Trust a fantastic opportunity. We will upgrade a key part of our energy infrastructure while at the same time reducing our carbon emissions and saving money.”
Ed Northam, Head of Investment Banking, UK Green Investment Bank, said “The NHS is one of the UK’s biggest energy consumers and upgrading existing technology will increase the reliability and resilience of its entire estate. This programme of energy efficient improvements will save energy, cut costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions without impinging on patient care.”
Jonathan Evans, UK Country Sales Manager Clean Technology and Healthcare, DLL, said “DLL is very proud to continue our investment in improving the energy efficiency of the NHS. Energy efficiency and clean technologies are a key strategic part of global business. Through collaboration with valued partners such as Vital Energi, DLL is able to help deliver improvements that are not only good for the environment, but also deliver a positive return on investment to the customer.”
Phil Mottershead, Account Director, Vital Energi, said “We are delighted to see forward thinking Trusts like Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust embrace the opportunities offered through the Carbon & Energy Fund to deliver huge financial savings and carbon reductions. We are excited to be working on this project which we believe will be a great example for other NHS Trusts who share similar ambitions of reducing their environmental impact.”
David Mackey, Director, the Carbon and Energy Fund, said “We are committed to working in partnership with clients from feasibility to contract close to ensure they maximise financial savings and carbon reductions through a practical and efficient solution. We are confident that, going forward, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust will have a fantastic new energy solution that is fit for the 21st century.”
