Combined Heat and Power Helps London Hospitals Reduce CO2 Emissions

Two of London oldest and most famous hospitals have reduced their energy costs by more than £1.5 million and reduced CO2 emissions by nearly 11,300 tonnes thanks to combined heat and power (CHP) technology.

Both of the hospitals have installed 3MWe reciprocating engine CHP systems to generate cost effective onsite heat and power. The NHS Foundation Trust for the two hospitals made the choice in response to growing energy costs, which reached around £10 million a year by 2004.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
