  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : CHP Powers Major UK Hospital
    December 16, 2014
    A UK regional hospital now covers most of its heating and low-temperature hot water needs with combined heat and power.

    the hospital’s electricity needs, and supplies hot water and heating to the neighbouring spinal treatment centre and day surgery through a 520-metre district heating network.

    Tony McDermott, business development manager (healthcare) at ENER-G Combined Power, said: ‘The district heating system provides the perfect constant warm temperature required by people recovering from spinal injuries at the specialist treatment centre. The CHP system satisfies normal heat requirements, with the backup boilers used if there is peak demand.’ The hospital Trust reports annual savings of over £240,000 (US$391,750)
