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)

The Yorkshire investments are part of a £52m cash injection the Coca-Cola bottler has pledged for its UK operations in 2014.
At Wakefield, a combined heat and power system, which will save 1,500 tonnes of CO2 a year will be installed alongside a new production line dedicated to making the contour Coca-Cola bottle in larger PET (polyethylene terephthalate) packaging, including 1.25 litre and 1.75 litre formats.

A major contribution to London's energy sustainability has been made this week, with the launch of the King's Cross Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Energy Centre, designed and built by Blackburn and London-based sustainable energy experts Vital Energi.
The energy centre will provide sustainable power for the new £2 billion, 67 acre King's Cross development in central London, which will create eight million square feet of office space, shops, a university and up to 2,000 homes and serviced apartments.

One of the world's largest medical funding charities is to run its human genome research campus on combined heat and power.
Hinxton Hall Ltd, which runs the human genome research and conference campus of the UK's Wellcome Trust charity, is to install a 2 MWe CHP unit from energy services company Dalkia.
The CHP system will also contain an absorption chiller, an ancillary plant and a cooling tower. Dalkia will operate and maintain the system.

Tecogen Inc., announced today the sale of a 525-kW cogeneration system for a major acute care hospital and its associated medical office buildings and clinics in greater Sacramento, California. This system will consist of seven (7) Tecogen modular 75-kW combined heat and power (CHP) units equipped with Tecogen's patented Ultra low emissions system. This CHP plant will produce electricity for the hospital's on-site use, as well as heat for the heating and domestic hot water systems. Tecogen is expected to be contracted to maintain the CHP plant in the future. This system has been designed to significantly reduce the operating costs of the hospital as well as reduce the carbon footprint of the site.

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today it received orders for two Capstone C800s and a Capstone C1000 to be used in two Southern California hospitals.
Vice President of Regatta Solutions, Kenda Burkhart, stated, "It is great to see the continued adoption of Capstone Turbine technology in the healthcare industry. The market as a whole is realizing that implementing clean and green CHP technology will deliver substantial improvements in their overall efficiency and reduce their facility's operating expenses." The site is expected to be commissioned in late 2014.

Combined heat and power will be a focus for the UK's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) going forward, according to departmental director Dr Colin Church.
'The "E" in EfW (energy-from-waste) is not "Electricity",' asserted Church. 'We've got two traditional energy-from-waste plants that are also producing heat’ in the UK, he added, ‘but we’ve got a lot that are only CHP-ready.
'If we're not going to capture that energy then the balancing point will be reached much quicker and it will be less and less attractive to use EfW. Pretty soon, 10 years or so if a plant is only CHP-ready and not CHP in-use, it will probably be no-longer environmentally beneficial.

Rooftop solar photovoltaic panels recently installed at 12 primary schools in the Redondo Beach Unified School District in California, US were funded by the state’s Measure Q, a US$63 million bond measure to support improvements in classroom, technology and energy efficiency.
The measure was passed in late 2012 and includes $500 million for green technology including on-site renewable energy systems.

A big gray box tucked into a corner of Medina High School's mechanical room is a working symbol of the school district's continuing quest to save energy and improve efficiency. Burkhart said the unit will offset more than 1 million kilowatts of purchased electricity a year, saving an estimated $82,944. It will also recover combustion heat and exhaust at a rate of 747,000 Btu per hour, which will be used to heat the Medina Community Recreation Center's two pools and spa.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with solar developer Solar Energy Corporation of India to explore possibilities for on-site solar power at DMRC's stations, depots and parking lots.
According to a study conducted by a joint Indian-German solar promotion project, Commercialisation of Solar Energy in Urban and Industrial Areas (ComSolar), DMRC’s stations and yards could potentially host solar PV systems with a capacity between 90 and 2500 kWp, capable of generating 400-10,000 kWh per day.
