Nevill Hall Hospital, in Abergavenny, Wales, is expanding its combined heat and power plant (CHP) – increasing generating capacity by a third and boosting energy savings by 35 percent, according to an article on the Plant Engineer website.
Energy efficiency upgrades have already helped the hospital to reduce its energy and operational costs by almost 5.16 million pounds in the last 12 years.
In 2013 the program has saved the hospital 517,000 pounds and reduced its carbon footprint by 1,261 tons. The power plant expansion will be funded with the energy savings, according to the article.
The hospital's program of energy saving initiatives includes the installation of the multiple turbine-based CHP tri-generation systems, lighting retrofits, a building management system upgrade and the installation of motor inverter controls to reduce electrical loads.
