York Hospital CHPA Awards

It’s always great to see an organisation get the recognition it deserves and we’re delighted that York Teaching Hospital’s efforts to reduce their CO₂ emissions and lower energy bills has been shortlisted in the Integrated Energy category of the Combined Heat and Power Association Awards (CHPA).

Both Vital Energi and Vital Efficienci worked in partnership with the Trust on the project which is guaranteed to save them over £12 million and 45,000 tonnes of CO₂ over the next 15 years.

Ashley Malin, Project Development Director commented, “York Teaching Hospital can now stand as an example of what other Trusts can achieve.  By combining energy management and energy generation solutions they have reduced their carbon emissions by 22% and substantially reduced their energy bills, allowing them to spend that money where it does the most good, on front-line clinical care.  We are thrilled the CHPA have recognised the importance of this project and we hope its success encourages other organisations to invest in energy management and generation solutions.”

The project initially saw Vital Efficienci make a number of carbon reductions and financial savings through energy reduction measures, including a major upgrade of the lighting scheme and Building Management System before Vital Energi designed and installed the 1.2MWe Combined Heat & Power (CHP) energy centre.

The announcement marks a hat trick of final appearances for the Vital family in less than a month after our work at West Whitlawburn was shortlisted at the Scottish Green Energy Awards Vital Efficienci’s work at Cancer Research UK was named as a finalist in the Energy Institute Awards.
