26 April 2017

The NHS is a highly energy intensive organisation with all Trusts and Foundations Trusts spending an estimated £560m on energy each year. The installation of energy efficient technologies is at the centre of the action to reduce carbon emissions across the UK. As well as reducing energy spend for the NHS, the patient and staff comfort levels alongside the hospital environment are vastly improved. In this session, Salix Finance will deliver guidance and information on opportunities for NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts to implement cost neutral energy efficiency projects and deliver on their sustainable development management plans. This will include an overview of a suite of services provided by Salix to help disseminate information and share best practice among Trusts, including regional meetings, technical workshops, case studies and project knowledge slides (PKS). An energy manager from a Trust that has benefitted from our funding will also be joining Salix to discuss the Trust’s previous and current energy efficiency projects and how they have utilised Salix funding for innovative projects across their hospitals. Salix Finance provides interest-free Government funding to Trusts and Foundation Trusts to improve their energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower their energy bills. Salix will draw on its extensive experience of funding over £48 million of energy efficiency projects in over 55 NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts across England to showcase best-practice examples of projects that provide quick paybacks on investment, creating both significant carbon and financial savings for NHS Trusts. Salix funding currently covers over 120 energy efficient technologies. Recognising that new energy-efficient technologies emerge over time, Salix is open to reviewing any new, innovative technologies that public sector organisations wish to implement.
