St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London's oldest, is getting a new, low-carbon combined cooling, heating and power system from the Sustainable Development Capital LLP (SDCL) "Powering Health" collaboration, according to an article on the Cogeneration website.

The project involves the installation of a 1.4MW GE Jenbacher CCHP system with 250W absorption cooling, designed to maximize financial savings, increase efficiency of operation and improve system reliability and resilience. 

The CCHP solution will be delivered in conjunction with the construction of a new energy centre at St Bartholomew’s.

The £2.5 million investment will be made by the UK Energy Efficiency Investments Fund, which is managed by Sustainable Development Capital (SDCL) and funded by the UK Green Investment Bank and other investors. 

St Bartholomew’s was founded in 1123.
