St. George

St. George’s Healthcare NHS Trust in the UK has been short-listed for the HSJ Energy Efficiency Award due to reduced carbon emissions and energy costs.

The NHS Trust was able to demonstrate cost savings and efficiencies without sacrificing patient care standards with the help of a heat recovery system provided by Thermal Energy International for use on its heating and hot water system.

The 31st HSJ Efficiency Awards will take place in London on 25 September 2012.

The St. George’s heat recovery project, the sixth heat recovery collaboration project between an NHS Trust and Thermal Energy International, is designed to cut carbon emissions by approximately 2,800t/yr and reduce energy consumption by approximately 15 million KWhrs annually.

The project will assist St. George’s Hospital Trust in achieving the targets set by the UK Government of reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.

Thermal Energy International estimates that the six projects the company and the NHS have collaborated on over the last three years are expected to collectively reduce carbon emissions by approximately 7,300t annually and reduce energy consumption by approximately 36 million kW annually.
