UK hospital chooses CHP

A UK hospital will save up to 208 tonnes of CO2 per year with combined heat and power.

Clifton Hospital in St Annes-on-Sea, part of the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals National Health Service (NHS) Trust, provides rehabilitation and respite care for patients with long-term conditions and has three 24-bed wards.

The 100-kW CHP system from on-site utility EuroSite Power will produce up to 1.75 GWh per year. EuroSite Power will install and operate the system under a fifteen-year contract worth an estimated à‚£1.7 million (US$2.72 million).

Many NHS Trusts have turned to combined heat and power for cost and carbon savings. The NHS’s Carbon Reduction Strategy, set by its Sustainable Development Unit, calls for CHP deployment in hospitals to be increased to the maximum potential by 2020.

According to the Combined Heat and Power Association, hospitals are ideally suited to make use of CHP systems due to their high 24-hour energy demands
