A new energy center at the Cheltenham General Hospital in the U.K. is expected to cut carbon emissions by a third with a new combined heat and power system, according to an article on the Cogeneration and On-site Power Production website.

Carbon emissions are projected to be cut by 1,789 tons per year while over the 18-year life of the project it will save the hospital £10.4 million, according to the article.

The £3.1 million project is expected to achieve savings of £169,000 a year, or a 30 percent reduction on energy bills and operating costs and a 40 percent drop in carbon emissions.

There are plans to extend the initiative to more healthcare facilities in 2017.
