Energy upgrades could save NHS 260m pounds annually

New research says the NHS trusts spend around £500 million a year on energy

The NHS could save up to £260 million a year by upgrading facility energy technologies and using distributed energy solutions, according to an article on the Energy Live News website.

New research states the NHS trusts spend around £500 million a year on energy but could reduce those costs by using technologies such as onsite energy generation, services that monitor consumption and provide energy efficiency like LED lighting, combined heat and power (CHP) plants and demand side response (DSR).

The study by Centrica Business Solutions contends that if just half of the NHS trusts adopted these distributed energy solutions and updated old technologies, £130 million could be saved.

That’s enough to fund more than 4,000 nursing jobs and will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions, that said.
