Manchester hospital set to save $2.7m through CHP

A hospital in Greater Manchester is expected to slash £1.9 million ($2.7 million) from its annual energy bill thanks to a new efficiency programme part-funded by the Green Investment Bank (GIB).

As part of the upgrade, the energy centre at Salford Royal will undergo 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 GIB is committing £3.4m to the scheme alongside £3.5m from financial group DLL. The project was procured through the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) framework – a mechanism designed to fund, facilitate and manage complex energy infrastructure upgrades for the NHS and wider Public Sector.

Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust estates manager Mike Dance 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.”

UKGIB head of investment banking Ed Northam 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.”
