The Cheltenham General Hospital's revamped energy center will save Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust more than £10 million and reduce carbon emissions by over 32,000 tons over the next 18 years, according to an article on the Click Green website.
Vital Energi will operate and maintain the project under a guaranteed energy performance contract for the next 18 years.
“We had two specific ambitions which we wanted to achieve. We wanted to significantly reduce the amount of money we spent on heating to allow us to reinvest savings into front line services and patient care," said Trust Chair, Professor Clair Chilvers.
“Secondly, we wanted to reduce our carbon emissions and I’m delighted to say that this project will deliver both these targets.”
The project was procured through the Carbon and Energy Fund and both the Department of Health and Aviva contributed towards its funding.
