Learn&Save: Energy and Water Saving in Hospitals
The UK healthcare sector spends more than £400 million on energy annually with electricity bills accounting for more than half of that figure. And energy costs look set to continue rising.
There are big savings to be made through better management and use of low-energy solutions. The “NHS and sustainability” report from the National Audit Office advises that £180 million could be saved each year with energy strategies that reduce consumption and carbon emissions.
Our work in the health sector includes ongoing energy-saving projects with Addenbrookes Hospital and we have completed hundreds of installations for global companies with savings that are proven time after time.
Our end-to-end service includes survey to project management, installation and testing.
We also work with Salix Finance – offering 0% interest options – and other funding groups on larger projects if funds are needed.
The products we offer from world-leading brands are all proven to deliver savings at competitive prices.
There are additional benefits with LED lighting, with greatly reduced maintenance costs and disruption to the hospital environment. A quality LED lamp will last for around six years with zero maintenance when run 24/7 but with intelligent controls will have an even longer working life.
Water efficiency is an area identified by the NAO as “low hanging fruit” for cost savings. As well as standard water-saving products like low-flow eco taps, products like the Propelair toilet not only reduce costs significantly but also bring health benefits compared with a traditional toilet.
We reduce the complexity in achieving sustainability in the health sector with effective cost and carbon savings through:
- Full savings surveys
- Detailed opportunity reports
- Specifying best products from leading manufacturers
- Creating investment-ready proposals
- Funding options
- Managing installation
- Proven products from trusted brands
- Flexible installation times
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Fully qualified and DBS-checked technicians
