Low carbon health division

25 August 2011

ENER-G has established a specialist new healthcare division following its appointment to a framework of approved contractors that will deliver major low carbon infrastructure improvements across the NHS estate.

ENER-G has been selected by the NHS Shared Business Services Carbon and Energy Fund to tender for and deliver multi-million pound projects to overhaul low carbon supply of electricity, heating and cooling at hospitals across the UK.

The £100 million plus Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) provides participating Trusts with specialist expertise, rapid project deployment, and capital seed funding that is recovered over a 15-year contract period through guaranteed cost savings underwritten by the appointed contractor.

Greater Manchester based ENER-G, which has delivered 65 low and zero carbon projects in the healthcare sector, has made the first of several key appointments to support its new healthcare division and the management of these complex infrastructure projects.

Derek Duffill, Group Managing Director for ENER-G, said: “ENER-G has already demonstrated the success of imaginative partnerships such as this in decarbonising hospitals to yield substantial environmental and cost benefits without the need for capital expenditure. We have our own manufactured combined heat and power and building controls technologies and are confident that we can supply the complete solution Trusts are seeking, helping them to gain best value and mitigate risk.

“At a time of budgetary pressures and ambitious targets on carbon reduction, ENER-G can provide proven expertise in replacing dated plant with state-of-the art low and zero carbon alternatives that place no financial burden on hospitals or UK tax-payers. This is a win-win arrangement and we look forward to helping the NHS to transform its estate.”
