The NHS Trust in the UK is working with supplier E.ON (FWB: EOAN) on a 15-year agreement to upgrade and manage the Queen’s Medical Centre’s (QMC) on-site power plant in Nottingham.

Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) are hoping that the technology will help them to cut their energy bills down by £2.8 million.

Energy Live News says the plant is part of an energy efficiency scheme that will also include energy saving measures including boiler optimisation technology, low energy LED lighting and building energy management controls.

The Trust is one of the biggest and busiest in England providing care to more than 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and 3-4 million people from neighbouring counties. It has three main sites with the QMC as the emergency care site.

The measures are expected to deliver carbon reduction of 16,000 tonnes.

Paul Baan, Head of Energy Efficiency at E.ON Connecting Energies told Energy Live News: “Across the country the NHS faces huge challenges in terms of budgets and Government-mandated environmental targets.

“No two hospital buildings are the same and the savings on offer will vary across different NHS operations but EPCs effectively offer an energy efficiency service which guarantees savings and a return on investment to Trusts across the country.”

A new strategy for the UK’s healthcare system recently laid out tips for hospitals to cut waste and carbon emissions.
