Projects carried out at York Teaching Hospital and London’s Camden Council brought recognition for Vital Energi at the Heating and Ventilation News awards this week.

The heating and cooling systems specialist was selected to win both the Retrofit Project of the Year and the District Heating Project of the Year awards.

Camden Council’s Somers Town Energy scheme saw Vital Energi design and install a district heating network and energy centre which will serve 339 houses across four estates in the first phase and by phase 2 the network will save over 1,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum with the installation of a combined heat and power plant.

Meanwhile the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust saw them install a CHP-powered energy centre and energy conservation measures, which will deliver over £12m of financial savings and 45,000 tonnes of CO2 reduction over the course of the 15 year contract.

Commenting on York Teaching Hospital, Mike Cooke, Regional Director (North) said, “The combination of energy generation and energy management has yielded significant savings for the Trust, who I am pleased to see, continue to their low-carbon commitments with further, similar projects at Scarborough and Bridlington Hospitals.”

The Heating and Ventilation News awards are the most prestigious awards in the UK building services sector.
