Veolia is working with Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a 20 year Energy Performance Contract (EPC) that will target savings of over £1 million per year at the 500 bed Rotherham Hospital.

Backed by the necessary investment and payback through the Carbon and Energy Fund Procurement framework, the EPC will now upgrade energy provision, reduce CO2 emissions by 49,620 tonnes and build long term energy resilience.

The projects will cover the design, delivery, installation, commissioning and subsequent operation of combined heat and power plant, replacement of seven 40 year old boilers, and installation of a chiller plant to provide effective air conditioning.

The contract will also upgrade the lighting to take advantage of the latest low energy and LED technology through the installation of 7,000 new fittings. Further energy saving measures will include insulation on pipes and valves, and a battery energy storage system. These energy saving measures will be guaranteed by Veolia who will also provide a comprehensive 20 year maintenance service. 

Gavin Graveson, Executive Vice-President, Veolia UK & Ireland, said: “Energy performance contracts have shown that they make a major contribution to meeting The NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy for England (CRS) and the ambition for the NHS to help drive change towards a low carbon society. Better still this also helps the NHS to become more sustainable and focus budgets on patient care. We look forward to working with the Trust and helping them meet the Department of Health’s Sustainable Development Unit model for NHS organisations.”

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is an Associate Teaching Hospital of the University of Sheffield and has an active research programme delivered through local, regional, national and international research networks and consortia. The Urgent and Emergency Care Centre deals with around 105,000 attendances per and there are approximately 30,000 day cases, 40,000 inpatients and 250,000 outpatient attendances at the Trust each year. 

Veolia currently provides the services that cover around 43,000 UK hospital beds and support the energy requirements for around 8.1 million inpatients each year. It claims this increases sustainability of the healthcare sector by annually saving over 120,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
