Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) has won approximately £25m grant funding for the City Hospital Energy Project.

The funding is part of the UK Government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS), which offers grants for public sector bodies to finance heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency measures.

Salix manages the scheme on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Delivered by Vital Energi through the Carbon and Energy Fund Framework, the project involves replacing the aged gas and coal fired boilers with energy-efficient and eco-friendly technologies.

These new technologies will help lower CO2 emissions.

The project also includes the demolition of the old laundry, build a new energy centre, install LED lighting, photo voltaic panels and air-source heat source pumps.

The new energy centre will feature combined heat and power units to provide both heat and energy for the City Hospital.

NUH Estates and Facilities director Andrew Chatten said: “We have long wanted to replace the old, inefficient gas-fired boilers on the City Hospital site, and remove the coal fired boilers which were also very damaging for the environment and costly to run.

“The energy efficient measures we will be able to install in their place will quickly pay for themselves, generating energy savings of around £1.8m per year.

“We are committed to doing everything possible to reduce our carbon footprint, and to upgrade our ageing hospital estate, which costs a lot to maintain and makes it much harder for us to deliver the outstanding patient care to which we aspire.”
