The UK’s York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (pictured) has officially commissioned a new combined heat and power energy scheme developed by Vital Energi.

The project was developed under an energy performance contract and is expected to deliver energy cost savings of some £12.7 million ($17 million) and almost 45,000 tonnes of CO2 during its 15-year lifespan.

With an investment of £4.6 million the project will generate a 26% reduction on current energy bills and operating costs.

Ashley Malin, Project Development Director, commented, ‘York Hospital had a clear desire to reduce both its carbon output and its energy spend, taking positive steps to improve the environment and save money which can then be spent on frontline clinical care. By guaranteeing these savings the Trust can now be 100% confident that this project will deliver day in, day out, benefitting service users for years to come.’
