NHS Trust to save £1.2m a year with trio of new energy measures

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust plans to install a CHP plant, implement an LED lighting upgrade and convert fuel sources from heavy fuel oil to gas

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust is embarking upon a trio of major energy-saving projects across its main hospital sites - it expects they will save a total of £1.2 million each year.

The trust, which has already reduced its carbon footprint by 13% between 2009 and 2015, is working with Veolia to introduce a new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) centre at Lincoln County Hospital, funded by Salix Finance.

This is expected to reduce emissions and energy costs when it enters operation later this year.
